Course summary

The MEng (Hons) Aircraft Engineering has been designed in partnership with the aerospace industry and will provide you with the skills required to work effectively in the aircraft design, manufacturing, aerodynamic and structural design and repair and overhaul sectors.

Aircraft engineers are responsible for the safety of thousands of air passengers every year. They play a critical role in the design and certification of an airworthy aircraft in accordance with aviation standards.

Designed in partnership with aerospace industry employers, this course includes visits to organisations such as Spirit AeroSystems and British Airways. Several final year projects are also undertaken in collaboration with industry.

Career Prospects

This programme has been designed to meet the needs of southwest Scotland’s aerospace cluster, which includes BAE Systems, Spirit AeroSystems, UTC Aerospace Systems and Ryanair. However, the skills you will develop are appropriate for careers in the UK and international industries too.

Jobs

A shortage of aircraft engineers ensures that your skills will be in demand by aerospace companies locally, nationally and internationally, allowing you to take on roles in design, manufacture or maintenance. Career opportunities include junior management and aircraft technician roles, as well as structural aircraft design and maintenance.

As an Aircraft Engineering graduate, you will have the wide-ranging skills to take on roles in design, research, development, manufacture or maintenance in management, technician, maintenance and design roles.
