University of Central Lancashire has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
If you’re fascinated by aircraft, spacecraft and related technologies then this course is for you. You’ll learn about aerodynamics, structures, propulsion, systems, flight dynamics, mechanical engineering and computer-aided design. And you’ll apply this to analyse and design flying vehicles.
In Year 3 you will complete a research project which will allow you to work creatively on an aerospace-related subject. And in Year 4 a group design project will give you valuable experience in team working and development processes.
You’ll work with a range of vehicles and use different types for design, analysis, simulation and test. You’ll get involved with unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) for civil applications.
You’ll graduate with a rounded education in aerospace engineering, be prepared for a wide range of career options, taking ideas from concept through to flight.
Engineering graduates are in greater demand than ever. Many career options are available to you because of the broad and diverse nature of Aerospace Engineering. These include the aerospace, space, defence, automotive, biotechnology, computing, electronics, energy and manufacturing sectors. If you’re interested in the scientific and mathematical aspects of the discipline, you can carry on into a career in research and teaching, including postgraduate aerospace research degrees at UCLan.
Year 1: Aerospace Vehicles (including Flight Challenge), Electronics and Instrumentation, Engineering Mechanics, Engineering Maths, Drawing and CAD, Manufacturing
Year 2: Aircraft Design and Manufacture, Aerospace Systems and Computing, Structures and FEA, Thermofluids and CFD, CAD and Manufacture, Operations Management A
Year 3: Flight Dynamics and Control (including Flight Test), Aerospace Propulsion, Aerodynamics, Advanced CAD, Operations Management B, Individual Project
Year 4: Group Design Project, Modelling and Simulation, Engineer and Society, Plus two specialist options
