Course summary

**Please note that the information provided relates to the current academic year and is subject to change without notice by Sheffield Hallam University.Please check the Sheffield Hallam University website for the latest information.****Course summary:**- Gain specialist knowledge of leading-edge aerospace technology.- Develop comprehensive understanding of engineering principles and theories.- Progress towards a career at the highest level of aerospace engineering – with the skills and knowledge to work in product design, senior management, development and manufacturing.This course runs parallel to the BEng (Honours) Aerospace Engineering.Please follow us on Twitter or Instagram to keep up to date on all things Engineering at Sheffield Hallam.**How you learn:**All our courses are designed around a set of key principles based on engaging you with the world, collaborating with others, challenging you to think in new ways, and providing you with a supportive environment in which you can thrive.With online resources, industry-standard facilities and exceptional learning environments, you’ll be supported at every step. Alongside teaching, our lecturers conduct research and consultancy for industry – either in our UK-leading Materials and Engineering Research Institute or in collaboration with other organisations. This means your lectures and seminars are always up to date, giving you the latest knowledge in aerospace engineering.You learn through:- lectures and seminars- tutorials- laboratory sessions- computer-based sessions- problem-based and practical, activity-based learning- group and individual project work- field trips- guest lectures- extracurricular activities- acting as student mentors**Applied learning - Work placements**You’ll have the chance to undertake an industrial training placement after your second or third year of study. Typically, these are 48 weeks long and enable you to apply your knowledge to commercial engineering practice while gaining new, real-world skills.Previous students have worked in technical roles for companies such as Rolls-Royce, Airbus, Boeing, General Electric, the Ministry of Defence, Meggitt Aircraft Braking Systems and Jaguar Land Rover.**Field trips**You may have the chance to tour industrial sites, attend guest lectures and visit aerospace engineering events. You can also spend time on specific training programmes such as piloting or computer simulations.**Networking opportunities**There are numerous extracurricular opportunities to gain experience on projects with the aerospace community. You’re welcome to join our student aerospace societies or space academic network or become a student ambassador or peer.
