Program description

This course prepares students for an exciting and rewarding career in the global aerospace industry, working on manned and unmanned aircraft and spacecraft projects. This degree places particular emphasis on encouraging and enabling students to be innovative in their engineering design.

The course is designed in collaboration with industry, which is directly reflected in the emphasis on the professional and transferrable skills you will learn. The MEng (Hons) Aeronautical Engineering degree has been developed to educate you in the design, analysis and testing of aeronautical and aerospace vehicles and associated technology.

City was the first institution in the UK to introduce Aeronautical Engineering courses. The department has strong links with industry (local, national and global), maintaining partnerships through research projects and student placements.

Students are strongly encouraged to take a 12-month industrial placement between the end of year three and the start of their final year. Specialist advisors within the School are in regular contact with companies to assist students in finding suitable work experience. Student s are paid while on placement and are visited by their personal tutor during this time. Following placement, students more fully appreciate the context and relevance of their university studies and gain a greater understanding of the industry they are about to join. This valuable experience may count towards the requirements for a professional engineering qualification. In recent years Aeronautical Engineering students have been able to obtain placements at leading companies within their chosen field such as Airbus, DHL Air, British Airways, Delphi and EDF Energy.

Aeronautical Engineering graduates work in all areas of the aircraft and airline industries and in other high-tech industries, such as motor manufacturing, F1 design, tall building design and offshore oil and gas extraction. Careers in aeronautical engineering in the UK are provided by larger companies such as Leonardo Helicopters, Airbus, BAE Systems, Rolls-Royce and QinetiQ and many successful specialist companies that supply components and services.
