Aerospace Engineering in the UK

UK Aerospace Engineering Courses

Introduction to Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace Engineering involves the research and development of aircraft and its associated technologies. You will learn about the complexities of aircraft systems, the various types of system failure and how to prevent such failure. A UK Aerospace Engineering degree will give you the necessary skills needed to work as an aerospace engineer working for an airline, a company or the military.

You should look for courses that are approved by the relevant professional bodies such as Accreditation from the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS), which meets in part the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) registration, and the full requirements for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) registration.

An Aerospace Engineering degree covers a number of subjects and related disciplines. Such a course may commence with mechanical and electric engineering, fluid mechanics, structural mechanics and dynamics, mathematics, physics, engineering design and application, and move onto more specialised fields in propulsion and materials science, maintenance and logistics, technical management, aerospace applications and aerospace industrial studies. Other modules may include aerospace technology, real time control and many others.

Careers in Aerospace Engineering

After completing a degree in Aerospace Engineering, graduates find roles in whole spectrum of aerospace careers in areas such as aircraft and component design, aircraft manufacture, maintenance and testing, flight simulation, patent engineering, systems engineer and structures engineer.
