Aerospace Engineering

This three-year course covers a broad range of subjects organised into three streams: - aerodynamics - dynamics and control - structures and materials. These subjects are specialised from day one and are taught with aerospace applications and examples. The first two years are devoted to core concepts, taught via lectures and backed up by practical experience through coursework and lab work. Further material, such as space applications and aviation operations, are covered in specialist units. You will also learn skills that cross all the streams, such as computing, systems engineering and design. There is extensive mathematical content throughout. In year three there is greater flexibility for you to pursue options that interest you. Some units relate to particular application areas, such as aeroelasticity or computational aerodynamics. Others units study particular technologies, such as composites analysis, experimental aerodynamics or optimisation. The diversity of topics in our Aerospace Engineering course makes this a very challenging degree, but the reward is a uniquely broad education.
