MEng Aerospace Engineering provides you with the core skills and specialist knowledge you need to launch a thriving career as an aerospace engineer.
This five-year degree in Aerospace Engineering starts with courses from across our engineering degrees to ensure you gain a foundation of essential knowledge.
In Year 1 and 2, you will study courses from our established mechanical engineering degree, respected by industry and employers for the way it builds capacity to solve problems, analyse engineering components, and design solutions to real-life challenges. You will also be introduced to key concepts from Aerospace Engineering.
Year 3 and Year 4 provides the opportunity to expand your knowledge in Aerospace Engineering with an Aerospace Group Design Project and specialist optional courses such as Spacecraft Engineering, Industrial and Sustainable Aerodynamics, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Technologies and Aerospace Simulation.
In Year 5, the courses in Aerospace Engineering become progressively specialised and you will complete a Major Aerospace design project.
