Why choose this course?
This MEng degree in Aerospace Engineering has an excellent, long-established reputation with the aerospace industry;The University of Hertfordshire has produced aerospace engineers with practical experience of design and development for future aerospace systems;You will have access to the best equipment: flight simulator, wind tunnels, specialist laboratories and CAE softwareYou will be offered a flying course at a local flying school with one-to-one instruction on both fixed wing aircraft and helicoptersOur aerospace staff have a wealth of industrial experience which gives an applied approach to their teaching and their contacts prove invaluable to graduates seeking employment.

Programme structure

First Year: You will study aerospace technology and industry, engineering mathematics, engineering applications of mathematics, materials and electrical science, mechanical science, introduction to manufacturing technology, career skills development, introduction to design, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics.
Second Year: You will study aerothermodynamics, aerospace design, further engineering mathematics, computer-aided engineering, structural mechanics, dynamics and data acquisition and control systems, project management and product development.
Third Year: You have the option of taking an integrated one-year professional placement.
Fourth Year: You will study aerospace performance, propulsion and design, stability and control of aircraft, aerodynamics, mechanics and properties of materials, aerospace structural design and analysis, and an individual major project.
Final Year (4th or 5th): You will study aeroelasticity, flight mechanics, CFD analysis for aerospace applications, human resources management, successful project delivery, and a team project. Across our Aerospace courses, Final Year students can participate in the BMFA Heavy Lift competition where you have the opportunity to design, build and compete with your own model aircraft, competing against teams from across Europe.

Career opportunities

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.

Work Placement
You have the opportunity to spend a year working either in a professional research environment or within industry. The practical experience you gain will be of tremendous benefit both when you resume your studies and when you embark on a career. Students have previously undertaken placements in organisations such as:
Airbus, MBDA Lockheed Martin, Virgin Atlantic Engineering, Marshall Aerospace, BAE Systems, Rolls Royce plc, Numerous small companies.
