Course summary

**Flight remains one of mankind's greatest achievements. With technology taking aviation further, prepare for a future career in this thrilling and lucrative sector with our BEng (Hons) Aeronautical Engineering degree.**Aeronautical engineering is the application of scientific and technological methods to research, design, develop, maintain, and performance test both civil and military aircraft. We’ve designed this BEng course to equip you with relevant technical and transferable skills in these areas, so you are ready for exciting career opportunities.**Develop in-demand engineering knowledge and skills**Delivered over three years – or four with a placement – you’ll study a suite of modules design to embed theoretical knowledge and creative application to help you become a world-class engineer. With a focus on real-world problems solving, you’ll explore how to improve fuel efficiency, ensure flight safety and apply using technology to take flight even further.Initially covering core engineering topics in relation to mathematics, electrical systems, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, structures and dynamics, you will start to explore aircraft design, including aircraft structures, flight systems, navigation, aerodynamics and performance. As you progress, you will focus on advanced flight systems, the aerodynamics of high-speed vehicles, and structural analysis using finite element methods. Learning takes place at our Peel Park campus, minutes from central Manchester. As an engineering student, you will experience hands-on learning using aeronautical laboratories, flight simulators and flight training system. You will also have the opportunity to gather real-time flight data with practical teaching using aircraft from Cranfield University’s National Flying Laboratory Centre. During the flight, the aircraft will conduct specific manoeuvres to gather flight data for your later analysis.Collaboration is core to our values, so we strive to embed this throughout your studies. You will experience group projects that will build your confidence and capabilities in team working, problem-solving and communication - all desirable skills for real-world aeronautical engineering careers.**Get closer to industry**The course team has long-standing connections with the aviation industry, both in the North West and beyond. You will benefit stimulating range of external guest lecturers, project and placement opportunities, and engagement with professional networks, as you learn about the decision-making methods used by industry.You will also have the option to include an industry placement year between years two and three, where you can gain additional professional and transferable skills, and boost your employability once you graduate.**Features**• Develop a deeper understanding of the theory of statics and dynamics and flight control as related to the dynamic behaviour of an aircraft• Learn about aircraft design, including detailed refinement of component design and major interactions that influence the overall design effectiveness• Assess aircraft performance by modelling aerodynamic loads and propulsion system performance, leading to key results in both steady and accelerated flight• Our Aeronautical Engineering courses scored 91% for learning resources in the National Student Survey 2020 (University of Salford analysis of unpublished NSS 2020 data)• This course is also available with an integrated masters pathway (Ucas code: H404)
