Aerospace Engineering University of Bath

Undergraduate

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

Our course is for engineers who want to apply fundamental mechanical engineering knowledge to the challenges of the automotive industry including areas such as cost, emissions, performance and materials.

Your first two years give you a detailed understanding of the core mechanical engineering principles. Using physical science, mathematics and computing, you'll learn how to analyse engineering systems. You’ll study vehicle design, manufacturing processes and component analysis in the context of the automotive market. In your final year, you'll have the flexibility to choose from a range of specialist units.

Group and individual projects give you the chance to put theory into practice and gain experience in engineering enterprise management. You’ll use your initiative to creatively solve complex engineering problems. The balance of technical, teamwork, and project management skills you develop will prepare you for the workplace.

You can also join our award-winning Formula student team, Team Bath Racing. As part of the team, you'll contribute to the design and build of a single-seat racing car and enter in the annual International Formula Student competition.

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