About this course

Discover how to use computers to help model and optimise aeronautic and astronautic designs. You'll learn 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.

You'll focus on computational engineering, which is a core skill to help aerospace engineers optimise their designs.

On this course you'll have access to our extensive facilities, which include:

  • dedicated student design studios and workshops

  • state-of-the-art jet engine and space propulsion facilities

  • flight simulator

  • professional manufacturing centre

Formula 1 teams and Olympic athletes have used our largest wind tunnel for high-performance testing. It's the largest wind tunnel at any UK university.
