About this course

Discover how to use computers to help model and optimise aeronautic and astronautic designs. MEng Aeronautics and Astronautics / Computational Engineering and Design will teach you how to research and solve new aerospace challenges, with a focus on computational methods.

Aeronautics and Astronautics looks at the science, engineering and manufacture of aircraft and spacecraft. You'll learn how they operate within our atmosphere and in space preparing you to design future aircraft, UAVs, race cars, jet engines, satellites and rockets.

You'll focus on computational engineering, which will provide you with the skills to solve new and emerging aerospace design challenges using advanced computational methods.

You’ll get hands-on experience in extensive facilities, which include:

  • dedicated student design studios and workshops

  • the largest wind tunnel in any UK university

  • jet laboratory with supersonic ramjet, turbojet and rocket engine

  • Boeing flight simulator

  • professional manufacturing centre
