This course covers subjects such as advanced computer aided engineering for aerodynamics and structures simulation, experimental methods to analyse structures and materials, and emerging aircraft technologies like unmanned aerial vehicles, commonly known as drones.
The aviation and aerospace industry are committed to a sustainable future and our course covers the appropriate techniques, methods and subjects within this ever-changing industrial environment in more detail.With an emphasis on applied technical work, particular prominence is given to the developments in aircraft autonomy, the design and analysis of aircraft structures, computational fluid dynamics, advanced materials and processes, flight simulation and experimental methods.You will have the option to apply for a ‘work placement’ opportunity2, designed to further develop your skills and knowledge with the aim of maximising your employability prospects. See modules for more information.

Upon successful completion, you will be able to:
Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of: advanced principles of flight dynamics, structures, aerodynamics, materials, advanced engineering modelling techniques and aerospace-related systems (and their future applications); advanced analysis and design tools and processes; the implementation and critical evaluation of design solutions through simulation and practical applications; the planning, execution and critical evaluation of projects in the field of aerospace-related systems at a professional level.Conceptualise complex technical aspects of future aerospace systems.Conduct detailed and systematic technical analyses of aspects of current/future aerospace systems.Devise technical solutions to problems in the design and implementation of current/future aerospace systems.Critically evaluate solutions devised to problems arising in the design and implementation of aspects of future aerospace systems.Select, apply and critically appraise tools and techniques of advanced analysis and design.Implement appropriate software and hardware solutions and simulations and critically evaluate the outcomes.Plan, perform, critically evaluate and present the results of an independent project in chosen specialist subject area.
The specialist topics studied on the programme are designed to prepare you for work in companies involved with aeronautical engineering, but there are also many roles in related industries that rely on the same technology, such as the automotive industry. Possible destinations could include the fields of design, development, operations and management, as well as projects, systems, structural and avionics engineers.
On successful completion, you will have developed a wide range of transferrable professional and technical skills including the ability to produce technical, written reports and deliver oral presentations, engage in self-directed study, operate as part of a team, demonstrate a critical awareness of professional, legal, social and ethical issues.
