Are you interested in the science behind flying? Maybe you are curious about aircraft design and manufacturing? Leading researchers in aviation teach our course to provide you with the skills and advanced knowledge needed to work in this exciting sector. Our department has links with companies including:
- Rolls-Royce Aerospace
- Flight mechanics
- Human Factors
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. At the end of year two, you will spend a year working in industry where you will gain first-hand experience of the exciting challenges that are faced by aerospace engineers, and significantly enhance your technical engineering and employability. In year four, you will work on a group design and make project, as well as choosing from a range of more specialised optional modules from within your chosen stream: general aerospace, aeromechanics, or aeroelectrical. During your fifth study year, you will undertake an individual project, as well as choosing from further specialised optional modules.
