MEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering, Astronautics & Space Technology

This course is ideal if you are interested in the design, construction and operation of aircraft but would like to extend your study of aerospace engineering beyond the atmosphere and up into space. This degree is accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society as leading to chartered engineer (CEng) status. Year 1 is common across all our chartered engineer status degrees. It provides skills and knowledge required for further study. You will examine the engineering challenges of robotic and human spaceflight (including practical rocketry), and get hands-on experience with real space hardware. You will study the functional analysis of spacecraft and their payloads and space dynamics, and will carry out a practical design exercise involving rockets. There will also be an industrial visit and guest speakers from industry. BEng students will take part in a group design project similar to the MEng students and get hands-on experience with real space hardware.

In Year 4 of the MEng degree, you will continue to deepen and broaden your expertise and undertake a major group design project. Coursework is designed to be achieved within the set amount of learning hours for each module and is appropriate to the level of study. We encourage a professional work ethic, which includes how to manage your time. A range of additional support is available to students who require it via the Academic Support Centre and personal tutors. Our courses are carefully constructed to allow you to build knowledge and skills progressively during your degree programme. We constantly update our curriculum to ensure that it covers the latest developments in your subject area, including the research and professional experience that your tutors bring to the course. Our course teams also draw on the wealth of experience provided by our professional contacts and highly successful alumni who feed into the design of our courses and provide master classes and workshops to enrich your learning.
