University of Birmingham has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
If you like challenges and problem solving and relish the idea of combining science, maths and engineering to develop new technologies, processes and materials for the aerospace industry, then this Aerospace Engineering BEng degree is for you.
You will be taught by academics that are experts in their field and have been at the forefront of progress in several areas, including the LISA pathfinder mission and the design of higher performing jet engines. This, together with the strong collaborations we enjoy with leading companies such as Rolls-Royce and Airbus, will give you the best launchpad for a successful career.
The Aerospace Engineering BEng course is structured to give you a broad coverage of engineering disciplines appropriate to the current and future aerospace industry and research area, including mechanics, materials, fluids and sensors and control systems that provide a basis for materials, structures and avionics. You will gain the skills necessary to transform the emerging fields of satellite, deep space missions and unmanned aerial vehicles where remote control and communications are required.
The interdisciplinary nature of the subject is dealt with by shared modules in all years as well as group project exercises. Graduates of the course will retain a specialism (materials, structures and avionics) but based on broad coverage to enable you to develop good careers in all engineering aspects of the aeronautical and space industries.
There is an opportunity to apply for a year in industry during your degree, this usually occurs between year 2 and year 3. You will be helped by us to find suitable internships, and assisted and mentored by academic members of staff throughout your year in industry. A year in industry is an invaluable opportunity to take on a role within a company, apply the theoretical knowledge of your degree course to real-world issues and will enhance your career prospects. Contact the Admissions Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further details.
