Course content

The UK aerospace and aeronautical industry is the largest in Europe and the second largest in the world. The sector has seen consistent growth in recent years and supports a growing number of highly skilled, high-value roles in aircraft aerodynamics, wind turbine design and maintenance, aviation management, the defence sector, and aircraft maintenance, repair and operation services.

This broad-based engineering course aims to train the next generation of aerospace professionals by providing technical skills in key areas of aeronautical engineering, supplemented by topics in material sciences, digital manufacturing and management concepts. Our graduates will leave with the advanced technical know-how required to work in the aircraft industry, along with a solid understanding of relevant management concepts.

You will study core modules in Advanced Flight Dynamics, Advanced Computational Aerodynamics and Instrumentation, Sensor Networks and more, with the choice of optional modules including Aircraft Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul and Unmanned Aero Vehicle Design.

You will be supported by our academics and technicians in producing your final-semester dissertation exploring a relevant topic of your choice.
