The aerospace engineering course encompasses advanced materials, design, aerodynamics, space systems, thermodynamics and the latest in computational and simulation tools. Using our extensive facilities for aerodynamics and materials testing, our demonstrator jet engine and flight simulator, you will put the theory you learn into practice through challenging project work. As a student on our BEng Aerospace Engineering programmes, you will have access to some of the most advanced flow facilities in Europe and be taught by world-leading experts in the field of aerospace engineering. You will also benefit from our close links with major companies such as Rolls-Royce, Airbus and QinetiQ. Our teaching is strongly informed by our research, and you will be guided by specialists in areas such as computational fluid dynamics, prediction of flows in gas-turbine engines (with links to our Thermo-Fluid Systems University Technology Centre), adhesive bonding, and the development of new materials for airframes and engine components. Our graduate employment record is truly outstanding. This is due to the professional focus of our degrees, with accreditation by professional institutions (RAeS and IMechE), and the quality of our professional placements leading to high-quality graduate employment. Most of our graduates proceed directly to employment in an engineering profession. Recent graduates have entered employment in roles such as: GE90 Strategic Propulsion Engineer, GE Aviation; Graduate Engineer, Rolls Royce; Graduate Engineer, Siemens Rail Automation; Graduate Flight Physics Engineer, Qinetiq; Mission Systems Engineer, Airbus Defence and Space; Quality Engineer, Thales UK and Telecoms Satellite Designer, Airbus. As well as enjoying an outstanding choice of routes to professional recognition in their own disciplines, our graduates also find that their highly developed computer skills and analytical and managerial abilities are valued in many other fields, in addition to those specifically related to aerospace engineering.
