Program overview

On this course, students can study topics such as Autonomous Vehicles, Sensor Fusion, Machine Learning, Noise Control, Experimental and Computational Fluid Dynamics, among many others. These are underpinned by learning the fundamentals of engineering and analysis techniques, equipping students for a career not only in the aeronautical and automotive sectors, but many others too.

As part of the course, students gain experience of testing and flight procedures by undertaking a flight test course, that includes up to four flights in an aircraft equipped as a flying laboratory. The course contains modules on Aircraft and Gas Turbine Design too; these allow students to put the theory they have learned into practice as they learn how to produce detailed engineering designs to fulfil specific design briefs. In the final year, students will work as part of a team to design an aircraft of the future and work on your own original research project, working to solve a real-world engineering challenge.

This courses are taught within the Department of Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering, where the teaching staff are engaged in pioneering research into air and ground transport, which helps keep this course up to date. The university brings together outstanding facilities, superb teaching, and strong links with industry to make sure students are completely ready for their future career.
