As a student on one of our Aerospace Engineering degree programmes, you will be stimulated by inspiring ideas and challenges and have access to our extensive facilities for aerodynamics and materials testing, demonstrator jet engine trials and flight simulation. Our fully accredited Aerospace Engineering degree programmes unite aeronautical, mechanical, materials and satellite engineering, and provide you with the academic expertise, practical training and commercial acumen you will need to succeed in this high-technology field. We also aim to make your learning experience as enjoyable and engaging as possible. One of the highlights of the programme is the chance to try out a flight test course aboard the Jetstream National Flying Laboratory. Our facilities need to support the project work which forms a key part of your studies. We already host a Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre, a flight simulator and a dedicated engine test cell. Our strong research activities directly inform our teaching. You will benefit from contact with specialists in areas including computational fluid dynamics modelling of complex processes (using state-of-the-art computer systems), prediction of flows in gas-turbine engines (supported by the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre and others), experiments in fundamental aspects of aerodynamics, adhesive bonding (a principal aerospace joining technique) and the development of new materials for structural engine components. These programmes share a common first year with our Automotive Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Medical Engineering programmes, giving you both a general background and the opportunity to change your degree choice. Direct entry to the second year is possible for candidates with qualifications that match our first-year requirements.
Level 1: Mathematics; fluid mechanics and thermodynamics; statics and dynamics; introduction to electronics; experimental methods; design and component production; design-make-evaluate project.
