All first year students also take the Global Engineering Challenge, where teams of students work to solve engineering problems in developing countries.

This Aerospace Engineering with a Year in Industry programme from University of Sheffield is designed to develop you as a professional engineer and enhance your career prospects. Second years get to work on a project to solve a problem set by one of our industrial partners.

Key Features
