The BEng Aerospace Engineering provides you with a basic preparation for professional careers in the aerospace industry (design, development, testing and operation of vehicles and systems), as well as in other areas, such as research, management, technical development and finance. We aim to instill not just a theoretical knowledge of engineering science, but also a solid base of practical skills, an understanding of design, comprehension of the commercial world and competence in transferable skills (problem solving, team working, creativity and IT). The degree also provides an excellent route for individuals wishing to proceed to postgraduate education as quickly as possible. Years 1 and 2 of this course are common with those of the MEng in Aerospace Engineering. Subject to satisfactory performance, it is possible for you to transfer to one of our MEng courses. **Aims** The core BEng course is identical with the first two years of the MEng course. This course achieves the same learning outcomes for those years. The course is intended to provide you with the skills necessary for a successful career in industry. In addition, it provides a route into postgraduate learning that is tailored to individual areas of interest, so that students with a BEng qualification can go on to apply for an MSc course in a more specialised area of Engineering. Satisfactory completion of the course will give you: - A comprehensive knowledge of engineering science and a strong base of practical skills. - Prepare you for a successful career in industry. - Develop your competence in transferable skills, particularly team working, creativity and adaptability. - Provide a route into more specialised postgraduate study (MSc), as opposed to taking an MEng which covers a more broad, wide of topics. **Special Features** The first year of study establishes a strategic overview of the main areas of aerospace engineering and introduces you to underlying science and mathematics. The second and third years develop the key technical knowledge and understanding that you need for entry into industry or postgraduate study. Throughout all years at Manchester, there is a strong focus on the attainment of transferable skills, such as analysis, design, modelling, organisation and problem-solving. This enables you to pursue careers in a range of high technology fields after graduation, as engineers, consultants, managers or researches. - There are opportunities for you to specialise in your third year . - There is a common first year, and opportunity for you to transfer to the MEng course.
