Course Summary

This 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. The course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers under license from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council. Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the high standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK for Professional Engineering Competence (UKSPEC).

Unpaid short-term summer internships may be available with local aerospace companies, enhancing the practical experience and employability skills of graduates of this course. Work placement opportunities available through the School of Engineering & Computing allow students to put theory into practice in real-world business environments. 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.
