Aerospace Engineering is an exciting, cutting-edge field that opens up international prospects. Graduates have a range of options in the research, design and development of civil and military aircrafts, missiles, weapons systems, satellites, space vehicles. They also work in testing and maintenance of aircrafts and systems and in improving efficiency and speed, weight, fuel consumption. Aerospace Engineering is increasingly oriented towards sustainability in recent years and many roles in the field also address its environmental impact. As a student in Aerospace Engineering, you will learn about aircrafts, flying and flight systems, and by the time you graduate, you will have specialist knowledge in aerodynamics, avionics, materials and structures, propulsion and systems integration. Our BEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering programme will provide you with the core and specialist principles of engineering to furnish you with the required skills to enjoy an exciting career path within this future-oriented sector. You will have the opportunity to customise your course to follow an Aerospace pathway, after you have sampled core engineering subjects. You will begin your studies at Level 4 with core common modules. You will master the essentials, including mathematics and computer-aided design (CAD) which will give you a great advantage on the job market. At Levels 5 and 6, you will gain more insight into subject specialisms. We have designed the programme so as to give you the opportunity to explore practical subject areas and to engage in hands-on learning. The programme will allow you to develop your own interests and projects in the field and prepare for the range of responsibilities ou can undertake in the future. The UK has a significant shortfall of suitably-skilled and qualified engineers, and a very advanced aerospace industry. At B&FC, we have well-developed working relationships with a wide range of Engineering employers, through which we help and support learners into sustainable employment. Many of our graduates are now employed by major companies (EDF Energy, Westinghouse Springfields, BAE Systems, Airbus, NIC, GCE and Ford Motor Company) as design, production, project or research and development engineers. Successful students may also wish to continue their studies by undertaking a relevant postgraduate degree at another university institution, leading to even greater career opportunities.
