Course summary

**Course summary**Gain specialist knowledge of aerospace technology.Develop comprehensive knowledge and understanding of engineering principles and theories.Develop towards a career at the highest level of engineering, with the skills and knowledge required to work in product design and development or senior management in the aerospace industries. This course runs parallel to the BEng (Honours) Aerospace Engineering.Alongside their teaching, our lecturers conduct research and consultancy for industry, either in our Materials and Engineering Research Institute - one of the best in the UK for engineering research, or in collaboration with other organisations. This keeps your lectures and seminars up to date, giving you the latest knowledge in your subject.You learn through:• lectures and seminars• tutorials• laboratory sessions• problem-based and practical activity-based learning• group and individual project work• field trips• guest lectures• extra-curriculum activities• acting as student mentors**Applied learning****Work placements**You can undertake an industrial training placement which is typically 48 weeks long, after the second or third year of study. You are able to apply the knowledge gained on the course to commercial engineering practice, gain new skills and learn how industry works.Previous students have worked in a variety of technical roles for companies including Rolls-Royce, Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Lockheed Martin, Meggitt Aircraft Breaking Systems, Jaguar Land Rover and many others.**Field trips**You may have the opportunity to visit various industrial sites, attend guest lectures and events on aerospace engineering, or you might spend time on a pilot training programme in the USA, run by Northwestern Michigan College.**Networking opportunities**You have opportunities throughout your course to gain extra-curricular experience on a variety of projects within the aerospace community, for example, by joining our student UAV society or rocket team, or by becoming a student ambassador or a student peer.Each year a few students attend the annual national conference of the Association of Aerospace Universities, showcasing their final year project work on a national level and networking with aerospace professionals from around the UK.We have a mentoring scheme where you are paired with students from the second, third and fourth year, helping you settle in and form friendship groups that last throughout your course and beyond.**Competitions**You can also take part in national and international engineering competitions, including• the Heavy Lift Challenge or UAS Competition, which involves designing and building a remote-controlled UAV model and testing it in a competition• Formula Student, where you design and build a race car and race it at Silverstone, home of the British Grand Prix• Engineering Without Borders, a competition to find an engineering solution to a problem in the developing world**Accreditation**This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) for the purposes of fully meeting the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
