What do you need to get in?
Main entry requirements
We require three A levels with overall grades of AAA in Mathematics and Physics and one other subject. We accept all subjects as the third A level, apart from General Studies. We can consider applications from students who are taking Mathematics A level but not Physics, provided they are studying the mechanical modules M1 and M2 in their Mathematics A level. Please note that if students are taking the newly reformed Physics A level, we will require them to pass the practical assessment included in the A level. Mathematics and
32 points overall with 6 in Maths at higher level, 6 in Physics at higher level and 5 in English at standard level.

Year 1: Introduction to many of the different branches of engineering; aerospace engineering; mechanical engineering; electrical engineering and energy systems; the programme is structured to allow students to change their specialisation at the end of the 1st year. Year 2: Emphasis on design as an integrator; it covers the design process and the commercial world in which engineers have to operate; challenges include exercises where learning is applied to practical problems. Year 3: Optional year in industry (leading to MEng aerospace engineering with industrial experience). Final 2 years: Option units in a chosen specialism; students demonstrate and develop further professional skills in design and an individual project requiring analytical skills, good planning and organisation.
