Specialise in aerospace design, performance, analysis and systems. Develop the engineering skills for a career in the aerospace industry. In your first two years of study, you’ll focus on learning the core mechanical engineering principles and the role of a professional engineer. You’ll explore how to incorporate design into the science, manufacturing and management elements of engineering so that you can build, analyse and test a product. Building on this, you’ll go on to specialise by studying areas including aerodynamics, stability and control, propulsion, structures and performance. To develop a full understanding of aircraft from design to manufacture, you’ll work with professional engineers from an aerospace manufacturer and take a flight test course at a local airfield. At Bath, we want to make sure you have the transferable skills engineers need in industry. You’ll develop complex problem solving and critical thinking skills as well as professional behaviours. You’ll explore how what you do as an engineer can impact the world around us and consider the ethical and environmental responsibilities this involves. Our course focuses on giving you opportunities to apply what you’ve learnt through practical project work. You’ll work on a group project to design a new aircraft to a specification given by industry or for entry into a competition such as the annual Unmanned Aircraft Systems Challenge. In your final year, you’ll choose from a range of specialist units and complete an individual research project that could be based on simulation, experimentation or design. You can choose to move between any of our BEng and MEng courses up to the end of your second year. This empowers you to take your degree in a direction that best suits your ambitions.

GCSE requirements: GCSE English grade C or 4 (or equivalent from category C). GCSE grades are an important part of selection for this course and we typically expect students to have a good number of GCSEs at grade 7-9 or A-A*. Your GCSE grades in Mathematics and Physics are particularly important and we typically expect grade 8-9 in at least one of these subjects. Your GCSE grades will be carefully considered as part of our contextual admissions process and depending on your circumstances, we may be able to consider you with GCSE grades of mostly 6 or B.
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.
