Course summary

TEF Gold

Loughborough University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.

Find out more about the TEF.

This BEng Aeronautical Engineering degree has been developed to allow you to gain a broad-based knowledge of aeronautical engineering plus the chance to specialise in modern engineering disciplines. In addition to providing knowledge to underpin engineering fundamentals, mathematical modelling and simulation, a strong theme throughout our Aeronautical Engineering degree is group work and design. Our Aeronautical Engineering degree covers the basic principles of aerospace technology including aerodynamics, thermodynamics, stress analysis, mechanics, dynamics and control engineering sciences which underpin avionics, design and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE). The application of these subjects to aircraft and aero-engine design and development is common across all years of our Aeronautical Engineering BEng (Hons) degree. During Year 1, the Aeronautical Engineering degree matches theory and application within lectures and tutorials, linked together with applied studies, such as practical instruction, computing and laboratory experiments.
