Specialise in aerospace design, performance, analysis and systems. Develop the engineering skills for a career in the aerospace industry.
In your first two years of study, you’ll focus on learning the core mechanical engineering principles and the role of a professional engineer. You’ll explore how to incorporate design into the science, manufacturing and management elements of engineering so that you can build, analyse and test a product.
Building on this, you’ll go on to specialise by studying areas including aerodynamics, stability and control, propulsion, structures and performance. To develop a full understanding of aircraft from design to manufacture, you’ll work with professional engineers from an aerospace manufacturer and take a flight test course at a local airfield.
At Bath, we want to make sure you have the transferable skills engineers need in industry. You’ll develop complex problem solving and critical thinking skills as well as professional behaviours. You’ll explore how what you do as an engineer can impact the world around us and consider the ethical and environmental responsibilities this involves.
Our course focuses on giving you opportunities to apply what you’ve learnt through practical project work. In your final year, you'll work on a full-time, semester-long, individual project. This could be simulation based or involve experimental measurements taken in the laboratory.
You can choose to move between any of our BEng and MEng courses up to the end of your second year. This empowers you to take your degree in a direction that best suits your ambitions.
