Course summary

This Aerospace Engineering course specialises in aircraft design, especially aircraft structures, materials and aerodynamics. The first ever passenger jet aircraft, the Comet, was designed and tested in Hatfield. Since then, the aerospace industry has seen unimagined technical progress. The University has a strong track record of providing the aerospace industry with highly skilled aeronautical engineers. This professionally-accredited degree has much in common with our MEng/BEng Honours degree in Aerospace Systems Engineering but has particular emphasis on materials selection and aircraft structural design. It provides the first step towards chartered engineer status. In our Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) lab, you will have an opportunity to get involved with UAVs as extra-curricular activity or as part of your final year project.
