The aerospace industry provides one of the most challenging
environments for the development and testing of new technologies. This
course aims to develop a broad range of systems engineering skills and
is taught with a focus on developing problem-solving skills.

You will learn to apply your knowledge to various aspects of
aerospace systems. Projects are based upon the systems utilised in the
latest military, civil, aircraft, helicopter and space vehicles. We
have invested heavily in aerospace facilities to ensure this course
provides excellent facilities for you to learn on actual aircraft

If you choose this course you will benefit from:

  • Accreditation by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) at the time
    of going to press but subject to re-accreditation for students
    enrolling in 2012. Up-to-date information can be found on Coventry
    University and Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) websites
  • The opportunity to work on a suite of Merlin flight simulation
  • Teaching staff with industrial and research experience in a
    variety of disciplines such as aerodynamics, flight dynamics and
    avionics and experience of working for Bombardier, Rolls Royce, BAE
    and the MOD
  • Strong international links. For example, one of our major
    international partners is the Emirates Aviation College located in
  • Collaborative provision of the Faculty of Engineering and
    Computing in 20 countries and links with several hundred universities
    around the world.

Your first year builds on your established skills to provide a
foundation of key engineering subjects. You will get an introduction
to aerospace topics such as aerodynamics, power plants, aircraft
systems and structures.

In the second year your aerospace design knowledge is increased. You
will study landing gear design, avionics, flight dynamics, fuel
systems and flight control systems.

Your final year includes an individual project and group design work.
In the group work, students compete as part of a team to produce a
demanding system design.

Career opportunities

Our Aerospace Systems Engineering students have gone on to careers as
Systems Design Engineers with companies such as Marshall Aerospace.
They have also become engineers in various aspects of the aerospace
industry with companies such as Meggitt, Goodrich, Moog, HS Marstons
and many more. We have students currently working overseas at Airbus,
France and Berntrandt in Germany. Some others have made careers in the
military as pilots and engineers.
