About this course

Learn to design future aircraft, race cars and rockets, and launch into an exciting engineering career or PhD. Our advanced courses cover many aspects of aerospace engineering including the design and manufacture of fast-moving aircraft and spacecraft.

This MEng degree 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 study the principles of aerospace engineering, then take more advanced modules. Finally you can choose to specialise your degree. In year 3 you will complete an individual research project. In year 4 you’ll take part in a group design project.

You’ll have access to our extensive facilities, which include:

  • dedicated student design studios and workshops

  • the largest wind tunnel in any UK university

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

  • flight simulator

  • professional manufacturing centre

As part of this astronautics and aeronautics master's degree you can:

  • showcase your work in our annual Engineering Design Show

  • attend site visits to experience engineering in practice

  • apply your engineering knowledge to solve a real-world problem

You can take this MEng with an additional year-long, paid placement. Apply with UCAS code H414 for the Industrial Placement Year option.

Our courses are fully accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

If you’d prefer a more general approach, or you’d like to focus on a different specialism, you can choose from our other pathways.
