Overview

Aerospace engineering is one of the fastest-growing industries in the UK, with extensive career opportunities in research and development, testing, and maintenance.

This Aeronautical Engineering (Hons) course at De Montfort University covers the basic principles of aeronautical engineering, including experimental and theoretical aerodynamics, aircraft design, flight dynamics and control, aircraft propulsion, flight simulation technologies, aircraft structures and computational aerodynamics.

Key features

  • Study a range of topics including aircraft structures and materials, flight dynamics and control, and aircraft propulsion systems.
  • The university has made significant investment into our dedicated Aeronautical Engineering facilities, and our students will be able to develop their practical and professional skills in our AIRFOX DISO flight simulator, our instrumented low-speed wind tunnel and by using simulation software.
  • Study either a three-year BEng (Hons) programme, or a four-year integrated master’s MEng (Hons). At the end of year three, you have the option of graduating with a BEng (Hons) or continuing for a further year for a MEng (Hons), subject to meeting the progression requirements.

Graduate Careers

After completing this programme, graduates have the skills to pursue employment in aeronautical and aerospace industries, civil aviation management, the defence sector, aircraft maintenance repair and overhaul services.
