Undergraduate degrees in aerospace engineering

We offer three-year BEng and four-year MEng courses in Aerospace Engineering, and Aerospace Engineering with Private Pilot Instruction (PPI). If you register for the PPI course you can extend your flying experience to gain a Private Pilot Licence.

Or you can take a four-year or five-year MEng with a Year in Industry, or a four-year MEng with a Year in North America.

Our aerospace courses are accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS), the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), and the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IoMMM; for students who have studied materials modules and who have completed a Final Year Individual Project that is materials focused).

The accreditation by these institutions allows our graduates to proceed to a Chartered Engineer qualification after suitable experience.

Flexibility and choice

The first two years of all our courses are common, which means that you can defer making a choice about whether you would like to study for a BEng or an MEng until the end of your second year. If you initially register for the BEng, and do well in years 1 and 2, you can then transfer to the MEng course. Similarly, MEng students may transfer to a three-year BEng programme.

Whichever course you select, after year 1 you will have the opportunity to follow a specialism of your choice. Our MEng course extends the range of options in the final two years by offering more specific paths that may be tailored to careers or interests in particular areas. The choice is yours.
