Aerospace Engineering (with Foundation Year)

**Summary**: This BEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering degree includes an integrated foundation year if you do not have the appropriate subjects and/or grades for entry to year one of the degree. The foundation year helps you develop your knowledge in mathematics and other important subjects to enable you to proceed confidently through the remainder of the programme. The programme 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 are 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. The programme incorporates a free flight test course in the second year. Our students fly in a Jetstream aircraft acquiring flight data as the aircraft undergoes a series of pre-planned manoeuvres. The data is used, together with theory covered in the classroom, to calculate the flight and performance characteristics of the aircraft. Transportation, accommodation and the flight tests are provided free to Teesside University students on this programme. 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. **After the course**: Most students who join an aerospace engineering programme do so because of their passion for flight and engineering, a combination not only enjoyable but also rewarding in terms of career prospects. Most aerospace engineering graduates seek careers in companies directly or indirectly linked to the aerospace industry. However the skills and knowledge you will acquire on your course will also be relevant to other sectors such as the automobile, engineering process, oil and gas, electronics, electrical engineering and renewable energy industries.
