The sky is not the limit, it is just the beginning. Aeronautics and astronautics encompasses a broad range of disciplines within the field of aerospace engineering.
Aeronautics and Astronautics courses cover applications to the specification, design and construction of aircraft, engines, satellites and other spacecraft.
Our wide range of facilities include world-class wind tunnels, state-of-the-art flight simulators, propulsion test cells, astronautics facilities and a student workshop.
Strong links with the aerospace and race car industries provide excellent opportunities for work placements and job prospects, and many of our students gain sponsorship.
Our graduates have followed careers in all areas of aerospace engineering, including fixed- and rotary wing aircraft, spacecraft and propulsion, and aerospace operations. The multidisciplinary nature of our programmes also prepares you for a career in many non-aerospace industries, particularly the commercial sector.
All of our master’s (MEng) programmes provide a direct route of entry to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status and are accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society and the Institute of Mechanical Engineering*.
