Structure/Content of the Course
Year One and Two
In the same manner as the BEng of Aerospace Engineering program, students get the opportunity to study an array of modules related to the field of aviation. During the first 2 years of study students will get to grips with aircraft design, aerodynamics, aircraft propulsion, fluid dynamics, flight mechanics and avionics. Students will also get to opportunity to undertake flight laboratory modules and participate in practical flight simulators to apply their studies.
Optional Industrial Placement
Year four gives the students the opportunity to study Avionic Systems, Computer aided engineering. Students also further their knowledge in aircraft design.
Students complete a project throughout the year while also studying aerodynamics, mechanics of aerospace materials, as well as automation and simulation manufacturing.
Students have gone to work in a variety of positions including aircraft leasing, finance, aerodynamic structural design, and engine design. Furthermore, the university boasts strong links with the industry. Past students have gone to work for Rolls Royce, Airbus, Bombardier, and BAE Systems.
