Accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) and based within the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Automotive, this course is designed to provide you the opportunity to learn the vital skills required to join the teams of aerospace systems engineers designing and developing systems for the next generation of aircraft.
We want you to develop in-depth detailed design skills with hands-on access to our remarkable equipment, which includes a Harrier Jump Jet, flight simulation suite and the Mercedes Petronas Wind Tunnel and industry standard software. This equipment may be just one of the reasons we have such high levels of student satisfaction – 96% overall in the latest National Student Survey (NSS) 2016.
Throughout the course you will have the chance to explore the theory of aircraft system design, the complexities of aerospace programme management and the application of industry standard virtual and practical techniques to design safe and reliable aerospace components.
Our suite of ‘Aerospace Engineering’ courses, which includes Aerospace Systems Engineering has been ranked 2nd in the country by the Guardian University Guide 2018.
