The University has a strong track record of providing the aerospace industry with highly skilled aeronautical engineers. This professionally-accredited degree has much in common with our MEng/BEng Honours degree in Aerospace Systems Engineering but has particular emphasis on materials selection and aircraft structural design. It provides the first step towards chartered engineer status. In our Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) lab, you will have an opportunity to get involved with UAVs as extra-curricular activity or as part of your final year project.
Year 1: Core modules: Aerospace technology; aerospace industry; analytical techniques; electrical and materials science; mechanical science; an introduction to manufacture; an introduction to design and fluid mechanics; thermodynamics. Year 2: Core modules: Aerothermodynamics and design; analytical techniques; computer-aided engineering; structural mechanics; materials and structures; dynamics; instrumentation and control systems; project management; project development. Year 3: Opportunity for a professional placement. Final year: Core modules: Aerospace performance; propulsion and design; stability and control of aircraft; aerodynamics; mechanics and properties of materials (or rocket performance and propulsion); aerospace structural design and analysis (or space dynamics); individual major project.
