Overview

Aeronautical engineers apply their knowledge and skills to every aspect of air vehicles; from design, development, manufacture, flight testing and certification, to preserving airworthiness and sustainable aircraft operations. 

In this Aeronautical Engineering (Hons) programme from University of South Wales you'll study the engineering principles needed for a career in the aerospace industry, and you'll gain practical experience on campus in our Aerospace Centre. Weather permitting, you'll also take to the skies with flight test lessons in your final year.

Work placements and experience are strongly endorsed to complement your studies, along with visits to sites such as GE Aviation Wales, Airbus Filton, and British Airways Maintenance Cardiff (BAMC).

Careers

The programme has links with the regional aviation industry, which includes GE Aviation, BAMC, Nordam Europe, TES Aviation Group, and other members within the Aerospace Wales Forum. Graduates of our Aeronautical Engineering degree are in demand in the UK, and in the civil and defence sectors worldwide. 

Some of the  companies with which our students work include Rolls Royce, GE Aviation, MBDA, Airbus, Jaguar Land Rover, BAMC, EasyJet, Emirates, Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and the UK Ministry of Defence.

Typical job profiles of our graduates are design engineers, certification and airworthiness engineers, project engineers and researchers.
