    Course Summary

    Aerospace engineering is a very exciting field, and one in which skilled Master’s level graduates are always in short supply. It involves using an advanced knowledge of science and technology to design, build and test the aircraft and space vehicles that will help to define tomorrow. It is a great choice for those who want to work with their hands as well as their minds, and who have a keen interest in aircraft, spacecraft and other aerospace applications.

    This degree program has been created with the demands of industry in mind, so you’ll be equipped with a wide range of industry-relevant skills, as well as the professional attributes employers have specifically requested. For example, you’ll come to understand the aircraft design, build and testing process by creating your own prototypes in UWE’s state of the art labs and testing spaces. You’ll gain even more expertise with a design, systems and/or manufacturing placement.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This MEng program is delivered over 4 years at full time. You can also take a year in an industrial placement.

    Year 1 Modules:

    • Design, Materials and Manufacturing
    • Energy and Thermodynamics
    • Engineering Mathematics
    • Introduction to Aeronautics
    • Stress and Dynamics

    Year 2 Modules:

    • Aero-Structures
    • Engineering Mathematics 2
    • Pilot Studies and Aerodynamics
    • Project Management

    In addition, you’ll take two modules from one of the three following pathways:

    • Design
    • Manufacturing:
    • Systems

    Placement Year (optional)

    Though the year in working placement is not required, it is strongly recommended for nearly all students. It will give you important practical skills as well as help you begin building your professional network.

    Year 3 Modules:

    • Aero-Propulsion
    • MEng Individual Project Part A.

    Plus one of the following:

    • Business Environment
    • Industrial Placement (for those who complete a placement year)
    • Engineering and Society

    All other modules will be selected from the pathway you chose in Year 2.  

    Year 4 Modules:

    • MEng Group project
    • MEng Individual Project Part B

    All other modules will be selected from the pathway you chose in Year 2.  

    Learning & Teaching

    Over the course of UWE’s MEng degree program, you’ll learn by many methods, including lectures, smaller seminars and in-depth tutorials. You’ll also spend quite a lot of tie in the university’s recently renovated laboratories, doing many different kinds of practical and project work. You’ll learn industrially-applicable skills first hand, optimising model aircraft and then taking a Flight Test course in a real aircraft, for example. You can also participate in a UAS challenge.

    Career Possiblities

    This degree program has been developed with the input of major employers, so it is no surprise that UWE’s Aerospace Engineering graduates are regularly snapped up by organisations like GE Systems, Rolls-Royce, Boeing, MBDA, Leonardo, Airbus UK and BAE Systems. They have gone on to design and build civilian and military aircraft, drones, helicopters and missile systems of all kinds. No matter what kind of Aerospace Industry career you have in mind, the university’s Careers Service can help make it achievable.

    Entry Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 4 year MEng degree, or a 5 year degree with a year in placement.

    Applicants must typically have achieved 2 A Levels, including Maths and at least one from a Science, Design or Technology related subject. Other qualifications can be accepted – see the list here.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to demonstrate English language fluency by scoring well on an appropriate test.
