Overview

Programme Highlights:

During the BEng in Aerospace Engineering (Hons) programme from University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) you’ll learn about aerodynamics, structures, propulsion, systems, flight dynamics, mechanical engineering and computer-aided design. And you’ll apply this to analyse and design flying vehicles.In Year 3 you will complete a research project which will allow you to work creatively on an aerospace-related subject.

And in Year 4 a group design project will give you valuable experience in team working and development processes.You’ll work with a range of vehicles and use different types for design, analysis, simulation and test. You’ll get involved with unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) for civil applications. Duration of the programme: 3 years or 4 years with work placement.

You’ll graduate with a rounded education in aerospace engineering, be prepared for a wide range of career options, taking ideas from concept through to flight.

Engineering graduates are in greater demand than ever. Many career options are available to you because of the broad and diverse nature of Aerospace Engineering. These include the aerospace, space, defence, automotive, biotechnology, computing, electronics, energy and manufacturing sectors. If you’re interested in the scientific and mathematical aspects of the discipline, you can carry on into a career in research and teaching, including postgraduate aerospace research degrees at UCLan.
