Aircraft engineers are responsible for the safety of thousands of air passengers every year. They play a critical role in the design and certification of an airworthy aircraft in accordance with aviation standards.
The MEng (Hons) Aircraft Engineering course will provide you with skills related to aircraft design, manufacturing, aerodynamic and structural design and to the repair and overhaul sectors.
Designed in partnership with aerospace industry employers, this course includes visits to organisations such as Spirit AeroSystems and British Airways. A number of final year projects are also undertaken in collaboration with industry.
Accreditaiton is being sought for the MEng (Hons) from both the IMechE and the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS).
A shortage of aircraft engineers ensures that your skills will be in demand by aerospace companies locally, nationally and internationally, allowing you to take on roles in design, manufacture or maintenance. Career opportunities include junior management and aircraft technician roles, as well as structural aircraft design and maintenance.
Some graduates choose further study, leading to an MSc, PhD or teaching qualification.
