Course Content

You will study eight compulsory modules. The group project involves the design, build, testing and flying of an aerospace vehicle. Your individual dissertation project is an in-depth research investigation directly relevant to aerospace engineering.


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.

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



Design and Analysis of Aerospace Vehicles

This module introduces a range of aerospace vehicles, their configurations, operating environments and design issues. Students will also gain experience in the conceptual aircraft design process and the use of specialist aircraft design software.

Advanced Aerodynamics, Propulsion Systems and Space Mechanics

This module provides a more advanced understanding of aircraft aerodynamics and aircraft propulsion systems. It introduces advanced theories and tools for analysis of aircraft aerodynamics and also introduces aspects of the mechanics of space and orbit flight.

Current Topics in Aerospace

This module aims to inform students about current topics that are relevant to the current and future design or operation of aerospace vehicles.

Aircraft Structures, Loads and Aeroelasticity

This module aims to familiarise students with the fundamentals of aircraft structures and aeroelasticity. It is designed to provide the knowledge to carry out calculation and analysis of aircraft structures, and skills in conceptual aircraft structural design.

Group Project in Aerospace Engineering

This module gives experience of design practice and engineering systems design through undertaking a multidisciplinary project. It aims to develop the necessary skills in design project management and planning.

Research Methods and Sustainable Engineering

Students will learn about impacts of engineering on society and the environment, the relevant regulations and about methods for assessing impacts. They will become cognisant of the obligations of business to society towards improving sustainability and be able to act responsibly, exercising good professional judgement as practicing engineers.

Strategy and Business Planning

Strategy and Business Planning


The dissertation aims for students to complete and report on a soundly executed and constructed programme of investigation, analysis and research containing original work.
