You will take courses in aerospace engineering, mathematics, dynamics, electronics, materials, statics, thermodynamics and engineering skills. This interdisciplinary approach, favoured by industry, also makes it easy to switch to most; other engineering disciplines at the end of year 1 should you wish to do so.
Years 2 and 3
You will concentrate on aerospace dynamics, aeronautical engineering, electronics and systems, electrical circuits and mathematics. There will be a focus on developing key software programming skills.
In year 4 you will study topics including flight simulation, aerospace vehicle guidance and control, radio and radar, dynamics, aircraft handling qualities and aircraft operations. You will undertake a project.
