Course summary

Course description

Due to the ongoing impact of the global pandemic we have had to evaluate all of our courses to ensure that we adhere to Government guidelines to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff and students. This means that as we work through these changes the modules, delivery methods and assessments shown, including those shown for future years, are subject to change.

This is for you if you are interested in studying Aerospace Engineering at an advanced level.

The course builds upon the General Engineering structure of the Department of Engineering. Hence, you will be exposed to a wide range of subjects across the Aerodynamics and Fluids, Materials and Control themes. There are few General Engineering departments in the UK which can offer such a broad perspective.

The modules of the course are organised in four themes. Control, Fluids, and Mechanics of Materials are core aerospace technology themes, which match the research background of the staff of the Department of Engineering. The fourth theme is the application of systems engineering to aerospace projects and missions.

The course can be taken full-time or part-time. The full-time version includes the option of an industrial placement, which is a great way to gain valuable experience.

Teaching and learning

Teaching methods include lectures and seminars supported by practical and lab work. Assessment is a mix of open and closed exams and continuous assessment. Your dissertation will be assessed separately.

Careers and employability

Our Career Development Service is here to support you, with advice on interviews, CVs, work experience, volunteering and more. From Freshers’ Week to Graduation and beyond, they are here to help you reach your professional goals.
