About the course
This course will introduce you to the exciting world of aeronautics and aerospace – an industry working at the frontiers of advanced technology.
Core subjects include analytical methods, materials, design and workshop experience, and in the latter part of the course you will take specialist modules in aircraft aerodynamics, avionics, aircraft design and flight mechanics, and complete a major individual project.
Every product or service has probably been touched in some way by a mechanical engineer. This course will give you a good grasp of mechanical engineering principles with a focus on aircraft design in Level 3, and it will prepare you for work with an aircraft or engine manufacturer.
This course aims to produce mechanical engineering graduates with enhanced knowledge of aeronautics equipped to play leading professional roles in industry and public service.
