Aeronautical Engineering with Foundation Year - University of Salford

Major airlines are constantly seeking opportunities to fly further, improve fuel-efficiency and enhance safety. Get onboard for a successful, lucrative career in a global industry with a degree in Aeronautical Engineering at Salford. Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), and the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS), our full degree course combines essential mechanical engineering content with aeronautic specialism and is a gateway to professional Chartered Engineer status. Our Foundation Year is an effective bridging course for applicants who do not meet the entry requirements for the BEng degree. Learning takes place in our Peel Park campus, minutes from central Manchester, voted the UK’s most liveable city in 2018. You’ll complete a range of modules to develop your maths and physics knowledge, so you have the confidence and ability required for higher-level engineering study. You’ll gain awareness of social, legal and environmental issues that are associated with the role of a senior engineer. You’ll study a broad range of engineering subjects to prepare you for a wide variety of careers. Led by our academic engineering team, our Foundation Year will give you the capabilities to take your passion for engineering further. On successful completion, this course will provide a seamless entry on to our full Aeronautical Engineering degree course. **FEATURES** - Complete experiments and projects in aeronautical laboratories, using our flight simulators to enter national competitions which Salford has won twice - Specialise in propulsion, computational fluid dynamics, aerodynamics, materials and structures - Develop a deeper understanding of the theory of statics and dynamics and flight control as related to the dynamic behaviour of an aircraft. - Learn about aircraft design, including detailed refinement of component design and major interactions that have a crucial influence on the overall design effectiveness - Assess aircraft performance by modelling aerodynamic loads and propulsion system performance, leading to key results in both steady and accelerated flight
