This unique course gives you the flexibility to pursue an engineering career designing aircraft from a pilot’s perspective, or to take the first step to become a commercial pilot. The compulsory flying element is mainly in the Final Year and is provided by a nationally recognised flight centre either in the UK or the US. There are additional fees for this, but at an attractively discounted rate compared to other flight centres. There are also opportunities to fly in the First and Second Years as an extracurricular activity, including the chance to use various flight simulators. The MEng’s extra year will deepen your knowledge of aerospace systems and develop your business and management skills.
In the past many of our aerospace systems engineering graduates have become professional pilots either with the RAF, Royal Navy, Commercial Airlines or private pilot instructors. By integrating the experience of flying in the initial stages of this degree, you will find the transition to working as a professional pilot easier. Alternatively, graduates may keep flying as a hobby and pursue an engineering career in an aerospace company or a smaller company in the aerospace supply chain.
