Course summary

Aeronautical and aerospace engineering is among the most challenging engineering disciplines, integrating mathematics, physics, materials and computer science with a strong design philosophy. This course will equip you to design, analyse, manufacture and operate aircraft and aerospace vehicles. You’ll be taught by academics with a passion for aeronautical and aerospace engineering who are at the forefront of their fields. Their strengths and expertise include aircraft structural analysis (ensuring the aircraft is strong enough), structural optimisation (making best use of materials), aerodynamics and computational fluid dynamics (minimising drag and increasing fuel economy), and aerospace systems design and analysis (ensuring stability and control). Our active Industrial Advisory Board helps inform the development of this course to ensure that it is up to date with industry developments and requirements. This is one of the reasons why our graduates are so in demand from industry.
