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. The first two years are the same across our Aeronautics and Astronautics degrees. This three-year course covers the core subjects of aeronautics and astronautics. You will study aerodynamics, astronautics, and propulsion, in addition to the economic, legal and environmental issues associated with aircraft and spacecraft. In your final year, you will extend your knowledge through advanced aerospace modules, and carry out an individual research or design project. 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 four 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.
