What will I learn?


The BEng in Aeronautical Engineering is designed to help you solve real world problems and develop new industrially-relevant solutions. The programme aims to provide you with a stimulating learning environment for understanding the role of the engineer; understanding mechatronics and related engineering sectors, whilst enhancing your skillset to deal with issues in product design engineering.

On this course you will gain extensive knowledge and understanding of the most up to date theories and hands-on work in within sustainability, aerodynamics, design engineering, mechanical systems and related wider engineering sector.

The programme will enable you to plan, execute and undertake critical analysis of results of practical and/or simulation tests within mechatronics engineering context.

Finally it will provide you with the experience to demonstrate self-direction and originality in solving problems, and act autonomously in planning and implementing tasks at a professional level with clear understanding of health and safety, ethics, sustainability and legal dimensions.


The mechatronics programme combines principles from aerodynamics, electronics, control and sustainability to design, manufacture, testing safety, management and efficiencies with aeronautical and air transport context.

Whilst on the course you will gain knowledge of engineering processes and systems, product design, digital electronics and integration of these technologies.

The aim is to provide a programme of study for aeronautical engineers of sufficient width and depth to meet the demands of your profession and to enable you to progress to the status of Chartered Engineer as well.

A specific aim of the programme is to promote an active interest in engineering and to encourage you to respond to changes and developments within sustainability, aerodynamics, design engineering, mechanical systems and related wider engineering sector.


We have new, modern library facilities on both campuses offering inspirational environments for study and research. Libraries contain resources in print and digital formats, a range of study spaces and dedicated librarian who can assist with your learning. Students are supported with any academic or subject related queries by a personal tutor, module leaders, former and current UEL students.
If you need a bit of extra help with certain skills such as academic writing, maths or IT, our Skill zone and English for Academic Purposes we offer workshops, drop-in sessions and one-to-one appointments to help our students achieve their potential.


Assessment tasks are mainly spread across the year to make the workload manageable. Assessment methods include group works, exams and individual work including essays, presentations, case studies, professional development and practical activities depending on the nature of the course. All grades count towards your module mark. More details will be included in the student handbook and module guides.
