Aeronautical Engineering

Course summary

The key aim of the Aeronautical Engineering Degree is to develop intellectual and application skills through knowledge acquisition, problem solving, deductive skills, synthesis, analysis, and evaluation. This also encompasses social and environmental implications. During the degree, you will: • develop a full understanding of engineering design concepts and the product development process. • gain key skills and sound knowledge for a successful career in aircraft design and manufacturing industries, as well as in a variety of modern manufacturing engineering sectors, • be pragmatic, taking a systematic approach and the logical and practical steps necessary for often complex concepts to become reality. • seek to achieve sustainable solutions to problems and have strategies for being creative, innovative, and overcoming difficulties by employing their skills, knowledge and understanding in a flexible manner. • be skilled at solving problems by applying their numerical, computational, analytical, and technical skills, using appropriate tools. • be risk, cost and value-conscious, and aware of their ethical, social, cultural, environmental, health and safety, and wider professional responsibilities. • be familiar with the nature of business and enterprise in the creation of economic and social value appreciate the global dimensions of engineering, commerce, and communication; • be able to formulate and operate within appropriate codes of conduct, when faced with an ethical issue. • be professional in their outlook, be capable of team working, be effective communicators, and be able to exercise responsibility and sound management approaches. You will also have opportunity to transfer to an integrated-master degree course MEng Aeronautical Engineering at the end of your year 2 (level 5) study. You can also choose to study this degree with a foundation year BEng (Hons) Aeronautical Engineering (4 years including foundation year). For Foundation year: You will also have the opportunity to transfer to an integrated-master degree course (MEng Aeronautical Engineering) at the end of your year 3 (level 5) study. You can also choose to study this degree without a foundation year for 3 years BEng (Hons) Aeronautical Engineering. This course is subject to EAB accreditation.


Year 1 (level 4) You will develop an understanding of the fundamental concepts, principles and theories in engineering. Acquire basic mathematic skills related to engineering and design problems. Use CAD for engineering design. Competence of working safely in engineering laboratories and workshops, and being able to conduct laboratory procedures, measurement and workshop practices under the guidance of a tutor. • Introduction to Electrical & Mechanical Engineering Science • CAD and Production Science • Materials and Environment • Engineering Mathematics • Engineering Professional Development • Modern Aircraft Technology Year 2 (level 5) You will build on the knowledge, concepts and skills acquired at level 4 in addition to more specialist knowledge, skills in engineering design and analysis. More in depth in theories in mechanics, thermodynamics, propulsion, flight dynamics, avionics, control systems, structures and finite element analysis, etc. Develop understanding in business and research methods. • Engineering Futures – Research, Ethics, and Sustainability • Thermo-Fluid and Propulsion • Further Engineering Mathematics • Computer Aided Manufacturing • Mechanics, Structures & FEA • Flight Mechanics, Avionics and Control Year 3 (level 6) You will acquire a critical understanding and application of the high-level concepts, principles and theories in engineering as well as a critical understanding and explanation of advanced topics in structural vibration, aircraft design and flight stability, and aerodynamics. Use knowledge and skills acquired to do an individual project. • Project (Honours) • Mechanical Engineering Modelling & Simulation • Aerodynamics • Aircraft Design & Flight Stability Optional • Advanced Structures and Vibrations • Professional Engineering Year 1 (level 3) (For BEng Aeronautical Engineering (4 years including foundation year) only) • Analytical Methods for Engineering • The Skills You Need • Design and Technology • Mechanical Science • Electrical and Electronic Science • Contextual StudieS
