Why choose this course?
Developing key skills and sound knowledge for a successful career in aircraft industries, as well as in a variety of modern engineering sectors, these courses benefit from strong industrial links and is designed to fulfil industries’ requirements.
The courses are focused on design. You’ll develop a full understanding of engineering design concepts and the engineering design process. You can explore radical new aeronautical and aerospace concepts and complement this with expertise in mechanical engineering to produce designs. In addition to specialist knowledge and skills in aeronautical engineering, this course also emphasises transferable knowledge and skills to equip you for a broader job market.
The first part of the course will introduce you to the fundamentals of mechanical and electrical science, the mechanics of solids and machines and computer-aided design. Then you'll develop more advanced knowledge, looking at aerodynamics, engineering dynamics, engineering design, structures and vibration analysis, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, propulsion, aircraft design, aircraft stability, and control.
You’ll be trained to use a variety of computer-aided design tools, including industry-highly-required Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tools. Also, honing your business skills are a key focus throughout the course.
You can also choose to study this course as a foundation year: Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering (with foundation year)
