Course summary

This course specialises in the design of space vehicles with a particular emphasis on rocket propulsion, space flight control, and satellite communication systems; students have access to flight simulators, wind tunnels, specialist laboratories and CAE software; they are offered a flying course at a local flying school with 1-1 instruction on both fixed wing aircraft and helicopters, which gives an applied approach to the teaching. Design of a modern aerospace system requires a team of engineers, each with their own specialisation. Development of the systems often transcends national boundaries to international flight, worldwide satellite communications and deep space exploration and is a truly international industry. The University has projects in both Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) and rocketry, with student projects, research and other activities already running. We have established the UK's premier UAV competition, in conjunction with the Royal Aeronautical Society, for universities across the UK and Europe. We also have a link with two space tourism organisations, and this year we are building a scale prototype of a space-plane, which will be powered by jet engines and a rocket motor. This degree programme includes a module on rocket performance and propulsion. You will have opportunities to gain flying experience at a local flying school. You will also benefit from use of our flight simulator which will enhance your understanding of aircraft performance, stability and control.
