About this course

Learn about the design and manufacture of aircraft, avionics, race cars and rockets, and spend a semester studying overseas. This course examines many aspects of aerospace engineering, including the design and manufacture of fast-moving aircraft and spacecraft, before specialising in more focused topics in the last 2 years.

Aeronautics and Astronautics look 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 and in year 3 you’ll spend either semester abroad. You’ll enrich your skills and experience a new culture at one of our partner universities in:

  • France

  • Italy

  • Sweden

  • Netherlands

  • USA

In year 3 you will also complete an individual research project and in year 4 you’ll participate in a group design project.

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

  • 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 course 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

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