The M/Eng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering degree builds on the breadth and depth of the B/Eng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering degree. In addition to the full range of topics including aerodynamics, structures, aircraft design, aircraft performance, flight dynamics, aerospace systems, it incorporates additional modules which provide a deeper and broader knowledge of engineering, leadership and entrepreneurship and an enhanced skills set.
We accept most Level 3 qualifications - the most common for Year 1 entry are:
- Access to HE
- BTEC Qualifications (QCF)
- BTEC Nationals (NQF)
- Advanced Diploma
- International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma
To join this programme you need to show evidence of good grade attainment in Level 3 maths and a science, preferably physics or a related subject, typically at least a grade 'C', 'merit' or equivalent.
The first three years of this programme are the same as the B/Eng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering Degree. Year 4 comprises of the following modules:
Year 4 Core Modules
- Advanced Aerodynamics
- Individual Project (M/Eng Part II)
- Industry-Related Group Project (UAV Design, Build and Test)
- Leadership and Entrepreneurship
Year 4 Optional Modules (Students take two modules - two from group one or one module from each group)
Options Group 1
- Computational Fluid Dynamics
- Finite Element Methods
Options Group 2
- Aerospace Systems Modelling
- Availability, Reliability, Maintainability and Modelling
- Production Management
- Supply Chain Management
The course is a mixture of both practical and theoretical work, with emphasis being placed on using industrially-relevant examples wherever possible.
The programme involves a range of types of assessment including coursework assignments and examinations.
Most aerospace engineering graduates seek careers in companies directly or indirectly linked to aircraft or space craft. However, in addition to the aerospace industries your skills and knowledge will also be relevant to other sectors such as the automobile, engineering process, oil and gas, electronics, electrical engineering and renewable energy industries, to name just a few.
