Our Aeronautical Engineering BEng(Hons) course provides a solid foundation in mechanical engineering, leading to specialisation in aeronautical engineering.

With a focus on employability, the course is designed with input from industry experts and accrediting bodies. Our Industrial Advisory Board contributes to the ongoing development of the programme, keeping it updated and relevant, while guest lecturers reinforce our strong industrial links and provide networking opportunities.

You will get involved in challenging and rewarding project work and have the chance to join the Formula Student team. Working in groups with other engineering specialists will develop your teamwork, project management, presentation, and communication skills, giving you an experience that mirrors industry.

The option of a paid professional placement year will help build confidence and provide valuable contacts.

If you achieve the required standard in year 2, you can choose to progress directly to the third year of the Aeronautical Engineering MEng and study towards a masters-level qualification.
