Mechanical engineers are recognised for their knowledge and skills in conceiving, designing, implementing and operating devices, machines, engines and energy systems.
You'll learn how to design aircraft engines, control systems, landing gear and about the many complex parts which sustain flight.
All students experience the same learning pace in the first two years and BEng students can, and often do, transfer to the five-year MEng programme. The Aero-Mechanical courses diverge from the core earlier to develop specialist themes.
Studying BEng Aero-Mechanical Engineering you'll learn about: aerodynamics; flight and spaceflight mechanics; aero-propulsion systems; gas dynamics; computational fluid dynamics; materials for aerospace applications; aero-elasticity; lightweight structures.
