Overview

Studying the BEng Aero-Mechanical Engineering (Hons) at The University of Strathclyde   you'll learn how to design aircraft engines, control systems, landing gear and about the many complex parts which sustain flight.

Many of the aero-related topics, such as aerodynamics and lightweight structures, are of special interest and value to a wide variety of engineering activities outside the field of aeronautics.

Graduates from the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering - which is consistently rated in the top 10 such departments in the UK -  are part of a new breed of engineer who can take on challenges ranging from traditional industries to areas such as new materials, sustainable development and aerospace.

Study abroad is an option for all Mechanical Engineering courses. 

Careers:

With skills including analytical, numeracy and problem solving, graduates are suited to a wide range of career opportunities.

While almost all Aero-Mechanical students continue to graduate with MEng (five-year) degree, those who graduate with BEng Honours often enter sectors including:

  • aerospace
  • automotive
  • manufacturing
  • engineering consulting
  • armed forces
  • energy & environmental engineering
