Aeronautics and Astronautics

You'll focus on fast-moving aircraft and spacecraft in the Earth's atmosphere and outer space. Aeronautics and astronautics covers advanced aeronautics and space applications, preparing you to design future aircraft, UAVs, race cars, jet engines, satellites and rockets, without limiting your knowledge to just one field.

You can either choose to retain a broad-based study path with our BEng and MEng Aeronautics and Astronautics, or to select one of our seven specialised degrees.

BEng Aeronautics and Astronautics

BEng Aeronautics and Astronautics

This three-year course covers the core subjects of aeronautics and astronautics, such as aerodynamics, astronautics and propulsion, and the economic, legal and environmental factors of aircraft and spacecraft.

MEng Aeronautics and Astronautics

MEng Aeronautics and Astronautics

This four-year integrated masters will provide you with the opportunity to study a wider range of advanced aerospace subjects, extending your knowledge and skills through a major group design project.

Choose to specialise with one of our seven MEng Aeronautics and Astronautics themes:

If you have not taken the required A level subjects for direct entry to your chosen degree, then you can take our one-year Foundation Year. You may also be interested in our Aerospace Electronic Engineering courses. We also have a campus in Malaysia that offers our MEng Aeronautics and Astronautics degrees.
