Understand the principles of aerospace engineering science and explore the latest thinking in aircraft design and manufacture.

The first two years of this course give you a detailed understanding of core mechanical engineering principles. You’ll learn how to use mathematics and computing to analyse engineering systems, and develop knowledge in design and manufacturing processes.

You’ll study aircraft performance, control and structures, composites, aerodynamics, propulsion and spaceflight. Lectures are balanced with laboratory work to give you the skills you need to build, analyse and test a product. So that you can develop a full understanding of aircraft from design to manufacture, you’ll visit an aerospace manufacturing company and take a flight test course at a local airfield.

At Bath, we focus on giving you opportunities to apply what you’ve learnt through practical project work. This is to help you develop the set of skills needed by professional engineers. 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.

Our MEng degrees give you an in-depth study experience through advanced taught units and project work. They also fulfil the educational requirements you need to become a Chartered Engineer.

We also offer this course with a placement year, giving you the opportunity to gain work experience as part of your degree.

You have the flexibility to transfer to any of our five mechanical engineering degrees, as well as decide whether you want to go on placement, up to the end of your second year.

Professional recognition/accreditation
This course is accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).
