This course is the same as our aerospace engineering degree, with added initial flight training. Individual arrangements may be made with a local flying school to continue to a UK or European Private Pilot's Licence. Your acceptance for pilot instruction is subject to medical and security checks. All our students also take the Global Engineering Challenge, where teams of students work to solve engineering problems in developing countries. This is designed to develop you as a professional engineer and enhance your career prospects. These figures give an indication of how you'll learn and be assessed. They're a combined average of all the years of the course. Our graduates are in demand internationally and go onto success in some of the world's leading engineering companies. Their average starting salary is £27,000. They work in aerospace design, aviation, transport, manufacturing, finance, energy and power, and the armed forces. Employers include Airbus, BAE Systems, BP, Ernst & Young, Jaguar Land Rover, Ministry of Defence, Nissan, Rolls-Royce, PwC, Royal Air Force and Shell. Some students continue onto further study or research. There's a focus on employability throughout your studies and you'll get all the support you need to help you achieve your career aspirations.
