Applicants may require an ATAS certificate to study on this programme.
Like the BEng, this course specialises in aircraft design, especially aircraft structures, materials and aerodynamics. You’ll follow the same pathway as the BEng programmes, but in your extra year you’ll deepen your knowledge and understanding of aerospace topics. You’ll also sharpen your business and management skills. The team project is multidisciplinary and involves applying your skills to solve an unusual and challenging problem, for example the design of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) for surveillance on Mars. You can also participate in competitions such as BMFA Heavy Lift competition, where you and your fellow students have the chance to design and build your own UAV and compete against teams from across Europe.
Graduate employment opportunities are excellent whether you are interested in the civilian or defence side of the aerospace industry. Some students return from industrial placements with sponsorships and job offers. Past graduates have been employed on major projects such as the Airbus A380 or the Typhoon (EFA), or in the development of missile systems, satellites and space vehicles. The MEng route will give you an extra year of study and provide you with a broader and deeper understanding of the engineering industry, which will make you very attractive to employers.
Having an MEng demonstrates your breadth and depth of understanding about the aerospace industry, therefore making you more attractive to employers. Past graduates have been employed on major projects such as the Airbus A380 or the Typhoon, or in the development of missile systems, satellites and space vehicles.
