Overview

If you want to follow an extended degree programme that will enable you to become a Chartered Engineer, this programme will be your choice. The double-accredited (by the Royal Aeronautical Society and the Institute of Mechanical Engineers) four-year MEng degree satisfies the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) and a European Engineer (Eur Ing).

The MEng is designed to offer students a greater depth and breadth of specialist knowledge in the core aerospace subjects with a range of advanced Year Four modules in subjects such as Configurational Aerodynamics, Aircraft Design, Lightweight Materials, Flight Handling Qualities, Rotorcraft, Advanced Guidance Systems and Management.

Year One includes an icebreaker group project as well as a one week team project to design, build and fly a small aircraft. Students also study Structures, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Maths, Electronics, Management, Design and Engineering Skills. The Pilot Studies module (based on the PPL ground school syllabus) complements the flight training programme of 20 hours which is mandatory.

Year Two students take modules in Aeroengines, Avionics, Computer programming, Maths, Dynamics, Structures, Design, Aircraft Performance and Project Management. The Pilot Studies module is based on the Air Transport Pilot’s Licence (ATPL) ground school syllabus.

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 Aircraft Design, Aerodynamics, Flight dynamics and control, Aerostructures, Avionics, Composite Materials and Management. They can also take optional modules in topics such as Spaceflight.

An additional fee of approximately £3,400 is required to cover the costs of the mandatory 20 hours pilot training.

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.

PILOT STUDIES FLIGHT TRAINING AND STUDY PACK – approx £3400 (subject to change due to fuel prices)

Programme Year Two

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).
