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.
Years 4 and 5
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.
MEng students in year 5 learn about aircraft handling qualities, aircraft operations, and advanced control concepts. Half of this year is devoted to project work, which can be carried out in industry, within the University or via a placement abroad. Optional courses are available in years 4 and 5.
