Program Description

The master in Aerospace Engineering (MEng) is an exciting, hands-on specialist course developed to equip you with advanced knowledge and management skills to meet the real-world needs of the global aerospace industry.

The master in Aerospace Engineering (MEng) is accredited by both the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). These professional bodies ensure that your engineering degree meets the academic requirement to qualify as a professional engineer. This accredited master in Aerospace Engineering (MEng) can be studied full-time over four or five years with a placement year. The master in Aerospace Engineering (MEng) fully meets the educational requirement to fast-track you to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

The placement year costs £1,385.

In final year you will have £3,000 fee reduction.

Course Content

Course delivery is a well-balanced combination of theory and practical sessions. In your first two years, you will gain solid knowledge and understanding of key aerospace engineering principles. You’ll also develop your reflective skills and professional development planning through the professional engineering practice module.

In later years, you move on to specialist topics such as propulsion systems, flight testing, advanced aerodynamics, space mechanics, and the design and analysis of aircraft and spacecraft systems. There is also a choice of optional modules, either fluids or solids, depending on your area of interest.

You will work on your industry-relevant individual research project in your third year and your major group project in your MEng final year.


Teaching and Learning

The aerospace engineering degrees are delivered by world-renowned academic staff. They are also researchers, collaborating with commercial organisations like aircraft manufacturers. This means they feed their cutting edge research back into the course. There will also be guest lectures from industry experts and aerospace engineering site visits.

There are opportunities to study abroad during your second year, either in Europe or at University of Iowa in the USA.

Study will combine lectures, seminars and tutorials, laboratory work, computer simulation, field work, case studies, self-study, research reports and project work.
