Why study aerospace engineering?
Engineering is where creative thinkers become world changers. An aerospace engineering degree will challenge you to ask questions, take risks and explore new perspectives.
You’ll turn ideas into reality, applying the principles of science and technology to the research, design, manufacture and certification of current and future aerospace vehicles.
If you’re fascinated by the history, technology and progress of aircraft and spacecraft, we’ll take your passion and transform it into career-shaping skill and experience.
Why UWE Bristol?
Our new inclusive, problem-based curriculum will broaden our engineering audience, enabling students from a wider range of backgrounds to pursue a career in engineering. To date, we’re the first university in the UK to transform our curriculum alongside constructing a new engineering building.
Accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society and Engineering Council, we’ve developed our BEng(Hons) Aerospace Engineering with input from regional aerospace partners. You’ll gain the skills and attributes needed to become a technical specialist and future leader within the aerospace industry.
You’ll be taught in our new state-of-the-art School of Engineering, designed to revolutionise the way engineering is taught. Featuring engine test cells, dedicated collaborative learning spaces and all the latest high-tech equipment, it’s purpose-built to support a wide range of engineering disciplines.
Where can it take me?
As a student engineer, you’ll start your professional journey towards becoming an incorporated or chartered engineer from day one. You’ll learn by doing, applying and revisiting your early skills through embedded project weeks and development of digital and physical prototypes, as you would in practice.
There’s an increasing demand for qualified aerospace engineers, so you’ll graduate with sought after skills and good employability prospects. Choose from broad career options, from working on the design and manufacture of civil and military aircraft, to working with helicopters and jet engines.
