On this course you will be taught the intricacies of aircraft
systems, the various types of system failure that can occur and the
implications of failure. You will be provided with the vital skills
needed to work as an aircraft engineer working for an airline or the
You will work on a fantastic suite of Merlin flight simulation
equipment. You will see what it is like flying a range of aircraft and
understand the cockpit and instrumentation. By wearing a special
helmet, you will be able to see the environment whilst you are flying,
even above your head or between your feet.
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 the Coventry University and
Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) websites
- Staff with industrial and research experience in a variety of
disciplines such as aerodynamics, flight dynamics and avionics, who
bring this into their teaching
- Previous students have obtained jobs in the military as pilots and
engineers, as systems design engineers (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
- International opportunities, e.g. some of our current students are
working overseas at Airbus in France and Berntrandt in Germany.
First year subjects include: aeronautical engineering, mechanical and
electrical engineering, aircraft principles and practice, and
In the second year you will study aerospace technology, aircraft
engineering and maintenance, avionic systems, instrumentation and
control, engineering management, and computer-aided design and
You will have an option to undertake a one-year work placement, or
study abroad in a partner institution. The final year modules include:
aerospace applications, aerospace technology, aerospace control
systems, aerospace industrial studies and an individual project.
I had a great time at CU! A brilliant social life and a
well-organised course ended with full-time employment. Perfect!
ANDY BOWEN, GRADUATE
The course aims to produce graduates with the skills to become
successful engineers and engineering managers, both in aerospace and
the wider engineering context.
Previous graduates have gone on to become aircraft engineering
officers (both military and civil), design engineers, quality
engineers and engineering managers for a wide variety of companies.
Students have also become pilots and worked in the whole spectrum of
