What will I learn?

Understand the foundations of aerospace engineering science and explore the latest thinking in aircraft design and manufacture.The first two years of this course give you a detailed understanding of core mechanical engineering principles. You’ll learn how to use mathematics and computing to assess engineering systems, and develop knowledge in design and manufacturing processes.You’ll study aircraft performance, control and structures, aerodynamics, propulsion and helicopter aerodynamics. Lectures are balanced with laboratory work to give you the skills you need to build, analyse and test a product. So that you can develop a full understanding of aircraft from design to manufacture, you’ll visit an aerospace manufacturing company and take a flight test course at a local airfield.At Bath, we focus on giving you opportunities to apply what you’ve learnt through practical project work. This is to help you develop the set of skills needed by professional engineers. In your final year, you’ll choose from a range of specialist units and complete an individual research project that could be based on simulation, experimentation or design.Our MEng degrees give you an in-depth study experience through advanced taught units and project work. They also fulfil the educational requirements you need to become a Chartered Engineer.We also offer this course with a placement year, giving you the opportunity to gain work experience as part of your degree.You have the flexibility to transfer to any of our five mechanical engineering degrees, as well as decide whether you want to go on placement, up to the end of your second year.
