Aerospace Engineering is concerned with the design and development of aircraft, helicopters and spacecraft. The skills you will develop on these degrees apply to both future spacecraft and high-performance aircraft in addition to the next generation of ground transport, such as high-speed trains. If you are on the MEng programme you will work on a group project in fourth year; recent examples include the design and construction of a rocket capable of breaking the UK altitude record and the design of a solar-powered racing car. All of our aerospace degree programmes are accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society
