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. 

Year Three 

Optional Industrial Placement 

Year Four 

Year four gives the students the opportunity to study Avionic Systems, Computer aided engineering. Students also further their knowledge in aircraft design.  

Year Five 

Students complete a project throughout the year while also studying aerodynamics, mechanics of aerospace materials, as well as automation and simulation manufacturing.
