Overview

rospace Systems Engineering programme has run successfully for a number of years and is accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS). The new MEng programme will run for the first time in September 2019. Both programmes are designed to provide you the opportunity to learn the vital skills required to join the teams of aerospace systems engineers designing and developing systems for the next generation of aircraft.

The aerospace industry provides one of the most challenging environments for the development and testing of new technologies. Offering a range of exciting careers, there is a growing demand for aerospace engineers with a systems focus and who are able to embrace the multidisciplinary aspects of problem solving to help design the next generation of aircraft systems.

We aim to develop a thorough, integrated understanding of mechanical, electrical and systems engineering and how this knowledge is applied in the aerospace industry. You will develop in-depth detailed design skills with hands-on access to our remarkable equipment, which includes a Harrier Jump Jet, flight simulation suite and the Mercedes Petronas Wind Tunnel as well as industry standard software. The course has achieved high levels of student satisfaction – at least 90% overall satisfaction in the National Student Survey (NSS) every year since 2015/16 and 96% in the latest survey.

Career opportunities

The UK aerospace industry is the largest in Europe and second only to USA (according to ADS Aerospace Facts & Figures). The industry had turnover of £31 billion in 2016 and includes BAE Systems, GKN and Rolls-Royce, and a range of international companies with operations in the UK, such as Airbus, Cobham, AgustaWestland, Finmeccanica, Thales, Boeing and Bombardier.

This course aims to produce graduates with the skills to become successful system-design engineers and engineering managers, both in aerospace and the wider engineering context, in fields such as aircraft and components design and manufacture, maintenance and testing, propulsion systems, flight simulation, aviation, avionics, patent engineering, financial services and many more.

When you are ready to find permanent employment, you can also receive support from our award-winning faculty careers service, EEC Futures, which won the ‘Best Placement Service in the UK’ award at the National Undergraduate Employability Awards in 2015 and 2016.
