Throughout this course, you will gain a solid grounding in the fundamentals of aerospace engineering, while also enjoying the freedom to specialise in the areas that most appeal to your interests and aspirations. You will study alongside world-class academics, and enjoy access to cutting-edge facilities. These include a flight simulator, wind tunnels, and the opportunity to undertake flight lessons to enhance your understanding of the world of flight even further. Furthermore, Nottingham enjoys very well-established links with industry, our strong ties with companies such as BAE Systems, Boeing and Rolls Royce mean our students enjoy a wealth of opportunity for work experience and career progression throughout the course and beyond. An accredited masters level (MEng) engineering course meets all academic requirements for professional registration and is the preferred choice for those wishing to become chartered.
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. During your fourth year, you will undertake an individual project, as well as choosing from further specialised optional modules.
