Overview

This undergraduate masters in Aeronautics and Astronautics gives you the opportunity to study a more extensive range of aerospace subjects at advanced level than the BEng programme (UCAS code H422). The first and second year of study however is identical to that of the BEng. It is aimed at students who wish to pursue technically demanding careers in aerospace industries (including project management) or research. Design, systems studies and individual/group project activities are an integral part of the course and reflect the multidisciplinary nature of aerospace engineering.

In Year 3, you will have the opportunity to spend one semester at a partner institution in France or Sweden.

Programme structure

On this integrated masters in Aeronautics and Astronautics programme you will study a number of core subjects during the first two years. These provide sound preparation for the final part of the degree. You will concentrate on the fundamentals of engineering and gain the skills and understanding required to use information technology in an engineering context.

In Year 3, you will have the opportunity to specialise or retain a broad-based study path through a wide selection of subject modules. You will also undertake an individual project that usually takes the form of a design or research exercise, and involves the production of a formal report. A group aircraft (or spacecraft) design exercise is completed in Year 3.

In Year 4, MEng students participate in a Group Design Project (GDP). These projects are often linked to current research activities or topics that have practical relevance to industry.

Career opportunities

The integrated masters in Aeronautics and Astronautics will open up a wide range of exciting career opportunities. Previous graduate jobs have included aerospace engineer, pilot, race car designer, IT and management consultant, software and systems engineer, as well as roles in research and postgraduate study.

If you are considering a career in the armed forces, Southampton is one of the universities designated for the Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme, which provides sponsored places to students on specific courses, including Aeronautics and Astronautics, and has active Army, Navy and Air Force units.

Among many successful Aeronautics and Astronautics graduates is Adrian Newey, who has worked as an F1 designer for Williams and Mclaren, and is now the chief technical officer of the Red Bull F1 racing team. Top motor racing teams look to Southampton for the best new aerodynamics talent for the future.
