Program overview

Year 1 will introduce you to the fundamentals of technology, mathematics and propulsion systems. Even at this early stage, you will get the chance to be airborne as our Practical Aviation Studies module gives you the chance to learn how to fly a glider. Year 2 will expand your knowledge into areas of aircraft aerodynamics and crash investigation. Between the second and third years, we encourage you to apply for an industrial placement year. These are paid, give you real-world engineering experience, and have been at companies ranging from Airbus Helicopters to GE Engines. Other specialist modules include flight technology - involving the study of aircraft flight control systems - subsonic and supersonic aerodynamics, crash investigation, flight deck controls, instruments and displays, navigation systems, material properties and selection, and computer-based design, analysis and simulation. In Year 3 you will study advanced aerodynamics and flight technology, which will prepare you for your final project. Your studies culminate with the GradEX graduate exhibition, where you will be able to exhibit your work to industry, VIPs and the public.
