If you don’t quite have the right qualifications to start our three year BEng (Hons) Aeronautical Engineering degree, you could opt to start your studies with a foundation year. The extra year is intended to give you the best possible preparation for success on the degree pathway. You’ll study introductory modules relevant to the degree course whilst developing key skills for academic study. The BEng (Hons) Aeronautical Engineering programme was developed in close consultation with industry professional bodies, including and the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) to boost your employability. You’ll study the engineering principles needed for a career in the aerospace industry, and you’ll gain practical experience on campus in our state-of-the-art Aerospace Centre. Weather permitting, you’ll also take to the skies with flight test lessons in your final year. The Aeronautical Engineering programme is based at Treforest. USW Treforest is surrounded by green open spaces. Our students say they love the warm and friendly welcome and community atmosphere, as well as the convenience of living and studying in the same place. From listed buildings to new, modern structures, Treforest reflects the University’s history and its ambitions. Here you will find everything you need in one place - halls of residence, the library and sport centre, cafes and bars to eat and drink, and friends to spend time with.
