Course summary

Overview

Aeronautical and Aerospace engineering is one of the fastest-growing industries in the UK, with extensive career opportunities in research and development, testing, and maintenance.

This course covers the basic principles of aeronautical engineering, including experimental and theoretical aerodynamics, aircraft design, flight dynamics and control, aircraft propulsion, flight simulation technologies, aircraft structures and computational aerodynamics.

Employment opportunities include careers in aeronautics and aerospace, namely aircraft aerodynamics, wind turbine design and maintenance, aviation management, defense sector, aircraft maintenance, repair and operation services (MRO).

You can study Aeronautical Engineering either as a three-year BEng (Hons) programme, or a four-year integrated master’s MEng (Hons). At the end of year three, you have the option of graduating with a BEng (Hons) or continuing for a further year for a MEng (Hons), subject to meeting the progression requirements.

Teaching

Aeronautical Engineering is taught by knowledgeable and professionally experienced staff giving you the opportunity to gain a sound understanding of the aeronautical engineering fundamentals along with the personal skills that will enable you to study successfully and embark on a rewarding career.

A combination of different forms of teaching is used throughout Aeronautical Engineering, with an emphasis on lectures, supporting tutorials and laboratory classes.

Student-centred learning takes place through research and presentation of findings, report writing, individual and group assignments and practical-work-based exercises for the development of required skills and through understanding of delivered material.

Graduate careers

After completing this programme, graduates have the skills to pursue employment in aeronautical and aerospace industries, civil aviation management, the defence sector, aircraft maintenance repair and overhaul services.

According to a House of Commons briefing paper, the UK aerospace industry is the biggest in Europe and the second biggest in the world with a turnover of £31 billion in 2016. It employs 95,000 people, with the greatest number of jobs in the South West and East Midlands.

The Aeronautical Engineering team believes the industry will continue to grow in the coming years as technology continues to develop, and this course will help to train the next generation of aerospace professionals.
