Aerospace Engineering with Pilot Studies (Foundation Year) - University of Central Lancashire

If you’re fascinated by aircraft, spacecraft and related technologies then this course is for you. You’ll learn about aerodynamics, structures, propulsion, systems, flight dynamics, mechanical engineering and computer-aided design. You’ll apply this to analyse and design flying vehicles. In Year 2 you will begin Private Pilot License theory studies, taking you well on your way towards a flying career. In Year 3 you will complete a research project which will allow you to work creatively on an aerospace-related subject. In Year 4 a group design project will give you valuable experience in team working and development processes. Also in Year 4 you will undertake theoretical studies at ‘Air Transport Pilot License’ level. You’ll work with a range of vehicles and use different types for design, analysis, simulation and test. You’ll get involved with unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) for civil applications. You’ll graduate with a rounded education in aerospace engineering, be prepared for a wide range of career options, taking ideas from concept through to flight. Engineering graduates are in greater demand than ever. Many career options are available to you because of the broad and diverse nature of Aerospace Engineering. These include the aerospace, space, defence, automotive, biotechnology, computing, electronics, energy and manufacturing sectors. If you’re interested in the scientific and mathematical aspects of the discipline, you can carry on into a career in research and teaching, including postgraduate aerospace research degrees at UCLan. You will be entering a diverse and exciting area of technology where you will benefit from UCLan’s investment in the Engineering Innovation Centre which is due to open in 2019. UCLan’s Aerospace Society organises invited lectures, events, visits and competitions and during your studies you will be encouraged to join the Royal Aeronautical Society and to participate in local branch events. You’ll have the chance to undertake a year-long industrial placement before your final year. We will support you through the application process in order to help you to secure a placement that is related to aerospace engineering. This placement is a great opportunity for you to broaden your horizons and to consolidate your learning. The experience will be invaluable when you return to UCLan, as well as giving you a significant advantage in your employability and early career development. You can either apply for MEng Aerospace Engineering with Pilot Studies or MEng Aerospace Engineering with Pilot Studies and Industrial Placement. You would have the option to transfer from one course to the other, depending on you are successful in gaining a placement. Note that the academic content of both courses (placement and none placement programme) is identical.
