Course summary

This three-year course covers a broad range of subjects organised into three streams:

  • aerodynamics
  • dynamics and control
  • structures and materials.
These subjects are specialised from year one and are taught with aerospace applications and examples. The first two years are devoted to core concepts, taught via lectures and backed up by practical experience through coursework and lab work. Further material, such as space applications and aviation operations, are covered in specialist units. You will also learn skills that cross all the streams, such as computing, systems engineering and design. There is extensive mathematical content throughout. The diversity of topics makes this a challenging degree but the reward is a uniquely broad education.
