Aerospace Engineering, B.Eng.
- Aerospace Engineering, B.Eng.
- Duration : 4 years
Our degrees combine theory with practical experience, and are tailored to give you the skills needed to design an aircraft or spacecraft. You will study a range of subjects - aerodynamics, structures, materials, systems, design, control - and get experience of making them work together through projects.
Degrees in engineering typically cover engineering basics in addition to a specialty area or technical field of study. Find out about the curricula for these programs, and learn about career options, job growth and salary for general engineering program graduates. Career options for individuals with a engineering degree include being a sales engineer, industrial engineer,Chemical,mechanical,megatronics, electrical or an environmental engineer. Graduates of engineering degree programs can work in positions that require a strong knowledge of math, physics and design systems. The project management and problem-solving skills students develop during their time in these programs can also be used to pursue employment in non-technical fields, such as business or health care. Some sample job options are profiled below:
This four-year course covers a broad range of subjects organised into three streams:
Programme Structure First year Fluids and Thermodynamics Structures and Materials Aeronautics and Mechanics Design and Computing Mathematics Electronics Aerospace Vehicle Systems or a language Second year Aerodynamics Structures and Materials Vibrations Flight Dynamics and Control Aerospace Vehicle Design & Systems Integration Space Systems Mathematics Professional Studies Third year Aerodynamics Propulsion Structures and Materials Sensors, Signals and Control Avionics Systems and Design Professional Studies Individual Exploratory Research Project Options chosen from a list of specialised aerospace and related topics, including: Computational Aerodynamics Experimental Aerodynamics Advanced Materials and Structures Aeroelasticity Heat Transfer Vibrations Optimisation Theory and Applications Non-linear Dynamics and Chaos Fourth year Individual Research Project Aerospace Vehicle Group Design Project Options chosen from a list of specialised aerospace topics including: Applied Numerical Methods for Aerodynamics Aircraft Dynamics Advanced Techniques in Multi-Disciplinary Design Composites Design and Manufacturing Dynamics of Rotors Advanced Composites Analysis Advanced Space Systems Engineering Design for Wind and Marine Power Computational Aerodynamics Advanced Aerodynamic Measurement & Analysis. Audience Our degree course is especially suited to students who possess a strong motivation to learn about aerospace, with an interest in aviation, space or a related area, or perhaps a desire for a broad and challenging engineering course. You will enjoy our aerospace degrees if you are fascinated by the details of how things work and the innovation required to make them better. You will need strong mathematics and physics skills and confidence in using maths as a tool to model the physical world, and enjoy the challenge of developing those skills.
