This course runs from 2017/18

The Airbus A380, the Boeing Dreamliner and the Eurofighter Typhoon each had key mechanical and electrical systems designed and developed in the UK. This course is designed to provide you with the skills required to join the teams of engineers designing and developing systems for the next generation of aircraft.

Why choose this course? 

The aerospace industry provides one of the most challenging environments for the development and testing of new technologies. This course aims to develop a broad range of systems engineering skills and is taught with a focus on developing problem-solving skills.

You will learn to apply your knowledge to various aspects of aerospace systems. The course aims to give you skills in designing aircraft components. Projects are based upon the systems utilised in the latest military, civil, helicopter and space vehicles. We have invested in aerospace facilities to ensure this course provides excellent facilities for you to learn on actual aircraft products.

 If you choose this course you may benefit from:

  • Accreditation from the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS), meeting in part the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) registration, and the requirements for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) registration in full;
  • the opportunity to work on a flight simulation equipment suite;
  • teaching staff with industrial and research experience in a variety of disciplines such as aerodynamics, flight dynamics and avionics and experience of working for Bombardier, Rolls Royce, BAE Systems and the MOD;
  • strong international links. For example, one of our major international partners is the Emirates Aviation University located in Dubai;
  • collaborative links with many universities around the world.


Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS)


What will I learn? 

Your first year builds on your established skills to provide a foundation of key engineering subjects. You will get an introduction to aerospace topics including aerodynamics, power plants, aircraft systems and structures.

In the second year your aerospace design knowledge is increased using simulation techniques. You will study landing gear design, avionics, flight dynamics, fuel systems and flight control systems.

Your final year includes propulsion systems design, supersonic aerodynamics, an individual project and group design work. In the group work, students compete as part of a team to produce a demanding system design. Previous group projects include the design of an aircraft landing system and the design and construction of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV).

How will this course be taught? 

Your course will be based on a series of lectures, with associated seminars and practical workshop classes. In addition, your personal tutor will review and discuss your progress with you and will be available for advice.

You will work with staff on real-world problems from industry, commerce and research groups, as you would in professional practice. This means that you develop all of the professional skills at the same time as you learn the technical content of your degree.

How will I be assessed? 

An estimated percentage breakdown of how your final grade is assessed is as follows:

  • formal examinations 30%;
  • coursework, tests, essays 25%;
  • practical or project work 25%;
  • group work etc.15%;
  • presentations, posters etc., other e.g. placements etc. 5%.

A compulsory Add+vantage module must also be completed: please see the page on the Add+vantage scheme for more details.

Teaching contact hours 

In a typical week you will have up to 20 contact hours of teaching and this will break down as:

Personal tutorial/small group teaching: 5 hours of tutorials each week

Medium group teaching: 5 hours of practical classes, workshops or seminars each week

Large group teaching: 10 hours of lectures each week

Personal study: 20 hours each week studying and revising in your own time

How will this course enhance my career prospects? 

This course aims to prepare you to enter the aerospace engineering industry. Our Aerospace Systems Engineering students have gone on to careers in the military as pilots and engineers. They have become systems design engineers with companies including Marshall Aerospace, Meggitt, Goodrich, Moog, HS Marstons and many more. We have graduates currently working overseas at Airbus in France and Berntrandt in Germany.

Coventry University is committed to preparing you for your future career and giving you a competitive edge in the graduate job market. The University's Careers and Employability team provide a wide range of support services to help you plan and prepare for your career.

The Faculty's Employability and Placement team, are the proud winners of the Best University Placement Service at the National Undergraduate Employability Awards in 2015 and 2016.
