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. In year three, students will begin their individual research projects as well as undertaking core modules in engineering management and public engagement, and certification, safety and reliability. There are also a number of specialised optional modules across the aeromechanics, aeroelectrical and general streams. Within year four you will undertake an individual project providing you experience in the practice of engineering at a professional level. You will also have the opportunity to select a range of optional modules to equip you with the skills needed for the aerospace industry.
