Course summary

– Both the MEng and BEng degrees are accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society as leading to chartered engineer (CEng) status. – You’ll have access to cutting-edge equipment, such as a rocket lab and a satellite ground station. – In Year 4 of the MEng degree, you'll continue to deepen and broaden your expertise and undertake a major group design project. A specialist Space Mission Analysis and Design module will cover the design, cost, logistical and operational implications of space missions. About this course These courses are ideal if you’re interested in the design, construction and operation of aircraft and would like to extend your studies into space. You’ll examine the challenges of space flight and the benefits of using the space environment. You’ll study aerodynamics, propulsion, structures, dynamics and materials, the design of spacecraft, payloads and space dynamics, and will carry out a practical rocket design exercise.

Qualification requirements

T Levels T Levels are an alternative to A levels, apprenticeships and other further education courses. T Level focuses on vocational skills and can help students into skilled employment, higher education and/or apprenticeships. Students who study T Level spend 80% of the course in the classroom, learning the skills that employers need. The other 20% is a meaningful industry placement, where they put these skills into action. T Levels are the equivalent to three A levels and we recognise the UCAS tariff points they attract in line with other qualifications that aid progression to higher education.

The student satisfaction data is from students surveyed during the Covid-19 pandemic. The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data – it is important to note your experience may be different from theirs. This data will be based on the subject area rather than the specific course. Read more about this data on the Discover Uni website.
