Overview

Did you know that the Airbus A380, Boeing Dreamliner and Eurofighter Typhoon each had key mechanical and electrical systems designed and developed here in this country? The UK is also one of few countries in the world with the resources to design and manufacture advanced helicopters.
Accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) and based within the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Automotive, this course is designed to provide the vital skills required to work as a knowledgeable and skilled engineer in the Aerospace industry.

You should develop practical system design skills with hands-on access to our remarkable equipment, which includes a Harrier Jump Jet, flight simulation suite and the Mercedes Petronas Wind Tunnel and industry standard software. Such equipment contributes to the reason we have such high levels of student satisfaction – 98% overall in the latest National Student Survey (NSS) 2018.

Throughout the course you will have the opportunity to explore the intricacies of aircraft systems design, the complexities of aerospace programme management, the various types of system failure and how they can be prevented through improved aircraft design.

Career opportunities

After the United States, the UK has the second largest aerospace industry in the world, employing around 230,000 people in over 3,000 companies, including BAE Systems, GKN and Rolls-Royce, and a range of international companies with operations in the UK, such as Airbus, Cobham, AgustaWestland, Finmeccanica, Thales, Boeing and Bombardier.

This course aims to produce graduates with the skills to become successful design engineers and engineering managers, both in aerospace and the wider engineering context, in fields such as aircraft and components design and manufacture, maintenance and testing, propulsion systems, flight simulation, aviation, avionics, patent engineering, financial services and many more.

When you are ready to find permanent employment, you will also have the opportunity to receive support from our award-winning Faculty careers service, EEC Futures, which won the ‘Best Placement Service in the UK’ award at the National Undergraduate Employability Awards in 2015 and 2016.

Previous graduates have obtained jobs in the military as pilots and engineers, as systems design engineers for Marshalls of Cambridge and Rolls Royce in Derby, and engineers in various aspects of the aerospace industry, with companies such as Meggitt, Goodrich, Moog and HS Marstons.
