This three year course covers a broad range of subjects organised into three streams:
Specialised from day one, these subjects are taught with aerospace applications and examples.
The first two years are devoted to core concepts, taught via lectures and backed up by practical experience through coursework and lab work. Further context such as space applications and aviation operations are covered in specialist units.
You will also learn skills that cross all the streams, such as computing, systems engineering and design. There is extensive mathematical content throughout.
In year three greater flexibility is available for you to pursue options that interest you. Some units relate to particular application areas, such as aeroelasticity or computational aerodynamics. Others study particular technologies, such as composites analysis, experimental aerodynamics or optimisation.
The diversity of topics in Aerospace Engineering makes this a very challenging degree, but the reward is a uniquely broad education.

Our degree course is especially suited to students who possess a strong motivation to learn about aerospace, with an interest in aviation, space or a related area, or perhaps a desire for a broad and challenging engineering course.
You will enjoy our aerospace degrees if you are fascinated by the details of how things work and the innovation required to make them better.
You will need strong mathematics and physics skills and confidence in using maths as a tool to model the physical world, and enjoy the challenge of developing those skills.
You only need to take one of these language tests:
Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Book IELTS
StudyPortals Tip: The UK government has confirmed new English-language testing requirements for visa and immigration purposes. Learn more
Minimum required score (Grade C):
The CAE test – or the Cambridge Advanced English – is an exam for applicants who wish to get a Certificate in Advanced English. To receive the Advanced certificate, test-takers must score between 142 and 210 on the Cambridge English: Advanced test. Read more about CAE.
Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
