Overview

The main aerospace engineering topics you’ll study include aerodynamics, aerostructures, flight dynamics and control, propulsion systems, communications, avionics and aircraft materials. The programmes include a two day flight test course in a Jetstream aircraft.

Year One includes an icebreaker group project as well as a team project to design, build and fly a small aircraft. Students also study Structures, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Materials, Maths, Electronics, Management, Design and Engineering Skills.

Year Two includes a two day flight course on board a Jetstream aircraft. Students take modules in Aeroengines, Avionics, Computer programming, Maths, Dynamics, Structures, Design, Aircraft Performance and Project Management.

Year Three students undertake an individual project providing the opportunity to conduct research and develop innovative concepts in their preferred technical area of interest. They also take modules in Aerodynamics, Flight dynamics and control, Aerostructures, Avionics, Composite Materials and Management. They can also take optional modules in topics such as Spaceflight and Aircraft Design.

Programme structure

Programme Year One

LAB COATS – Students will be required to wear a lab coat for all Engineering laboratory sessions. Students may purchase a lab coat at the start of the year from the Student Support Office at a subsidised cost of £15.

ProE – In week 7 of the second semester students take a week long course in ProEngineer for which they are required to purchase a manual at a subsidised cost of £10.

Programme Year Two

Students are required to participate in a Flight Test Course (24 days in 2nd semester); marks contribute to AERO212 and AERO215.

SAFETY BOOTS – Students undertaking Aerospace Engineering programmes will be required to wear safety shoes or boots (that is to say with both toe cap and midsole protection conforming to European safety legislation) for some activities, and these must be provided by the students themselves.

Career opportunities

The University of Liverpool’s Careers & Employability Service maximises opportunities for career prospects, graduate opportunities, student summer placements and the annual engineering careers fair with 30 blue chip companies attending (including Jaguar Land Rover, Nestle, Toyota, JCB, British Army, United Utilities, ABB Ltd, Network Rail, BAE Systems and many more).
