Teesside University, Middlesbrough has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Summary: Our BEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering includes a range of fundamental topics in mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, materials engineering and design, as well as specialist aerospace and aeronautical topics such as aerodynamics, aircraft performance, flight dynamics, avionics, aircraft systems, aircraft structures, aircraft design and propulsion systems.
Course details: You are taught by experienced staff with backgrounds in either industry, the Royal Air Force or Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm who bring real-life experience to the classroom. You have access to a wide range of well-equipped laboratories which include flight simulators, a wind tunnel, fixed and rotary wing aircraft and aircraft components. The programme incorporates a free flight test course in the second year. Our students fly in a Jetstream aircraft acquiring flight data as the aircraft undergoes a series of pre-planned manoeuvres. The data is used, together with theory covered in the classroom, to calculate the flight and performance characteristics of the aircraft. Transportation, accommodation and the flight tests are provided free to Teesside University students on this programme. If you have a passion for aircraft, or you simply wish to develop into an engineer with wide and varied engineering skills applicable across a range of industries, then this programme is right for you.
After the course: Most students who join an aerospace engineering programme do so because of their passion for flight and engineering, a combination not only enjoyable but also rewarding in terms of career prospects. Most aerospace engineering graduates seek careers in companies directly or indirectly linked to the aerospace industry. However the skills and knowledge you will acquire on your course will also be relevant to other sectors such as the automobile, engineering process, oil and gas, electronics, electrical engineering and renewable energy industries.

Your programme includes a range of types of assessment including coursework assignments, project reports and formal examinations. You are expected to attend a range of lectures, small-group tutorials and hands-on laboratory sessions. Your programme also includes a substantial final-year research-based project. You are also expected to spend time on your own - self-study time - to review lecture notes, prepare coursework assignments, work on projects and revise for assessments.
You typically spend four out of five days a week in classes and laboratories at the University, and on one day each week transport will be provided to take you to our facility in Hartlepool where you will utilise the laboratories, facilities, workshops and aircraft to perform group design and project work, as well as laboratory work associated with some of your technical modules.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
