More about the Course
Rapid changes in technology and global business structures mean that today's graduates need to be flexible and versatile. This broad-based aviation course, covering computer simulation and design, technology, production, manufacture, management and business studies, equips you for a wide variety of career paths.
In the first year of your BSc Honours degree course in Aerospace Technology with Management you will gain a good grounding in engineering focused on technology, information technology and management, as well as being introduced to basic aircraft systems, principles of flight, aircraft operations.
In your second year you will build on your knowledge of core technologies, IT and management skills as they are applied within the aerospace industry. This includes studying aerodynamics with, wind tunnel testing, design of aircraft structures and components, using commercial standard software used within the aerospace industry. You will also have the option of some flying lessons at a local flying school. In your third year you can choose to spend a year on professional placement gaining valuable experience with a company who are active in this field.
In your final year you will concentrate on the application of aerospace technology and key business skills. You will also get involved in a project to design a complete aircraft with MEng and BEng students, and develop specialist knowledge by undertaking an in-depth project on a topic that interests you. There is also further opportunity for flying.
