Course content

This is a fully immersive conversion course for engineering graduates, drawing upon expertise from six departments in the faculties of engineering and science, as well as the University’s management school. There are close ties with some of the world’s leading aerospace companies.

Alongside traditional aeronautical subjects such as materials, structures, aerodynamics and propulsion necessary for the design of high-speed flight and lightweight aircraft, you will also study concepts of systems integration and flight control. These are essential to the production of more efficient and environmentally-friendly aircraft and aerospace systems.

You’ll have the opportunity to tailor your studies to suit your individual interests and career aspirations by specialising in either aeromechanics or avionics. Our innovative programme of study includes having the chance to design, build and fly an Unmanned Air Vehicle as part of the group design project. You’ll graduate as a highly knowledgeable aerospace engineering specialist.
