Course details

Modules

All students follow a common programme of study for the first two years, studying core material that provides a solid practical foundation in engineering analysis and aircraft technology with hands-on design exercises and laboratory tests. In year three, you will work on a group design and make project, as well as choosing form a range of more specialised optional modules from within your chosen stream: general aerospace, aeromechanics, or aeroelectrical. At the end of year three, you will spend a year working in industry where you will gain first-hand experience of the exciting challenges that are faced by aerospace engineer, and significantly enhance your technical engineering and employability. During your fourth study year, you will undertake an individual project, as well as choosing from further specialised optional modules.
