Aeronautics and Astronautics / Airvehicle Systems Design with Industrial Placement Year

Our courses provide you with the fundamentals of engineering, alongside design modules throughout your degree, which enable you to apply your knowledge and develop the skills you need to become a successful engineer. This course focuses on aeronautics with an emphasis on helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft, engine design and avionics. Using a complete vehicle systems approach, you will also learn about modern design, search and optimisation techniques. This course is ideal for a career in air vehicle design. The Industrial Placement Year is an additional year-long module that allows you to apply for a placement with an engineering-based organisation. The Industrial Placement Year will be taken between your second and third years, extending your degree to five years. During your year-long placement, you will fulfil the role of a trainee engineer on a full-time basis. We offer our students a dynamic learning environment; your course will include a combination of lectures, laboratory classes, tutorials, private study, and individual and group projects.
