Course Summary

This is for you if... you want the knowledge and skills required to work in the exciting field of aerospace engineering - including a practical flight test at a later stage of your degree. The MEng is a direct route to Chartered Engineer status.Engineers are innovators who bring about change through their ingenuity, experience and curiosity to improve the quality of life for people throughout the world. Their work is central to thriving economies and competitive industries. It is equally important in developing countries where engineers provide appropriate technologies during difficult times of change. Professional engineers have a high degree of specialist knowledge but increasingly they use a broad approach to problem solving across a range of engineering disciplines. This is coupled with an awareness of environmental, social, legal, economic and regulatory aspects of the problem at hand. Whether you study for the BEng or the MEng, your Aerospace Engineering degree starts by providing a broad engineering foundation, which includes mechanical, electrical, communication and software engineering subjects. You will then gradually develop further specific knowledge and skills in mechanical engineering with a focus on aerospace engineering. Specialised lectures on topics such as flight dynamics, aircraft navigation, aero-engine design, aerospace materials and aircraft performance will be given by visiting lecturers from BAE Systems, Rolls-Royce and other aerospace industry companies. You will have the opportunity to attend a practical flight test course and to use a flight simulator to enhance your knowledge and skills in aerospace engineering. Successful engineers must be able to analyse and solve complex problems in the industrial context, communicate ideas to others and work effectively in teams and exercise leadership skills. This is why all our Engineering degrees include a selection of management modules in the second and third years. Topics covered include business finance, project planning and management, intellectual property, health and safety, motivation theory, marketing, total quality management, ethics and professionalism.
