Aerospace Engineering

Learn about aerodynamics, structures, propulsion, systems, flight dynamics, mechanical engineering and computer-aided design.

Benefit from significant investment in the latest high-quality equipment and facilities available through our new £35 million Engineering Innovation Centre. Including immersive and desktop flight simulators, additive manufacturing, intelligent systems and composites workshops. 

You will then apply this knowledge to analyse and design flying vehicles. You’ll also complete a research project which will allow you to work creatively on an aerospace-related subject. And a group design project will give you valuable experience in team working and development processes.

You’ll have access to cutting-edge software tools, flight simulators – including both immersive as well as desktop. Be prepared to work with a range of vehicles and use different types for design, analysis, simulation and test and get involved with unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) for civil applications and learn the principles of flight testing.

Our courses have been designed to comply with the educational requirements published by the UK Engineering Council, the Royal Aeronautical Society and the Institute of Mechanical Engineers meaning you’ll graduate industry ready.
