Course content

Take your knowledge of aerospace engineering to the next level on this specialist one-year course.

Alongside traditional aeronautical subjects such as materials, structures, aerodynamics and propulsion, you will also study concepts of systems integration and flight control, essential to the production of more efficient and environmentally-friendly aircraft and aerospace systems. You will get to choose the direction your studies take by specialising further in aeromechanics or avionics.

You will have the unique opportunity to work alongside professionals through our 12-week industrial training programme, as well as designing and building an Unmanned Air Vehicle as part of the group design project.

The course draws upon expertise from six departments in the faculties of engineering and science, as well as the University’s management school. This breadth and depth of study will ensure you graduate as a highly knowledgeable aerospace engineering specialist.
