Aerospace Engineering

Summary: Our BEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering includes a range of fundamental topics in mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, materials engineering and design, as well as specialist aerospace and aeronautical topics such as aerodynamics, aircraft performance, flight dynamics, avionics, aircraft systems, aircraft structures, aircraft design and propulsion systems. Course details: You will be taught by experienced staff with backgrounds in either industry, the Royal Air Force or Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm who bring real-life experience to the classroom. You have access to a wide range of well-equipped laboratories which include flight simulators, a wind tunnel, fixed and rotary wing aircraft and aircraft components. Your degree programme combines an employability enhancing curriculum with significant practical work, small manageable group sizes, and friendly and accessible lecturing staff. According to UNISTATS (2016), 97% of students felt that the Staff are good at explaining things and 93% of students felt they have received sufficient advice and support with their studies. Overall, 93% of students were satisfied with the quality of the course. If you have a passion for aircraft, or you simply wish to develop into an engineer with wide and varied engineering skills applicable across a range of industries, then this programme is right for you. Graduate aerospace engineers can expect starting salaries of around £28,000, increasing to £60,000+ when a senior level is reached (prospects.ac.uk 2016). After the course: As a graduate aeronautical engineer your work may be office-based or in a factory production hangar, aeronautical laboratory or aircraft maintenance facility. If you become involved in aircraft design work, you will use sophisticated computer visualisation tools and software. The UK has an advanced aerospace industry and jobs are available in a number of UK locations. The main aerospace manufacturing and maintenance locations in the UK are the South West, Midlands, North West, Northern Ireland, South East, South West Scotland and Wales, but there are many companies in the manufacturing supply chain or involved in aircraft maintenance operating in other regions too, including the North East of England. There are many countries with an aerospace industry so job opportunities also exist overseas. If you successfully complete this degree with at least 2.2 honours you are eligible to apply for a place on a postgraduate master's programme at Teesside University, further enhancing your job and career prospects. Starting salaries for aerospace and aeronautical engineers can reach £28,000, increasing to £65,000+ at senior levels (prospects.ac.uk 2016).
