This degree aims at providing you with the knowledge and skills required in the Aerospace Industry.
Flight vehicles are subjected to demanding conditions such as those caused by changes in atmospheric pressure and temperature, with structural loads applied upon vehicle components. Consequently, they are usually the products of various technological and engineering disciplines including aerodynamics, propulsion, avionics, materials science, structural analysis and manufacturing. Because of the complexity and number of disciplines involved, aerospace engineering is carried out by teams of engineers, each having their own specialised area of expertise.
The course is designed to meet accreditation requirements of the RAeS and IMechE for Incorporated Engineer status. This course will include a live flight experience, which is reinforced with SIM work in Flight Simulator. We have strong links with industry and place considerable emphasis on student projects. We also encourage industrial placements as part of a sandwich year option.
What you will study
This degree includes a large amount of mathematical and computational analysis, mixed with practical design and build activities, which are designed to embed the classroom learning. The first year of the course is common with our aeronautical provision allowing you the chance to switch between courses at the end of your first year. Commencing the second year you will study a range of aerospace modules unique to this course, and this thread then continues until the end of your studies.
The course is designed with industry in mind, and opportunities that will arise in the aerospace industry. USW has a strong record of placing graduate engineers in substantive roles upon graduation.
You will develop soft skills through practical design and make activities, and finally, you will study elements of management, business and project management. This will develop your initiative, and effective communication and interpersonal skills, to achieve the high level of technical leadership required in a modern engineering environment. Your new skills will be further tested through group and individual research and design projects.
The course is delivered on a full time basis, and the typical academic year runs from the end of September to Easter, with Exams in May. Typically modules have between two and three hours of contact time per week, with directed learning and independent study making up the majority of a students study requirements.
We offer a range of guest lectures, Engineering trips and industrial visits during the course.
You can study this degree on a full time basis and it also offers a sandwich work placement should you decide this is an appropriate pathway for you.
This aerospace programme is taught through lectures, which are supported by tutorials, practical sessions and seminar groups. Wherever possible, your work will be based on live projects and case studies, with contributions from industry professionals.
Throughout your course, you will engage in activities that help you become self-reliant, self-motivated and resourceful, as well as develop leadership qualities and management expertise.
There is a range of assessment methods, such as formal closed book exams, group work, individual projects, oral assessments and laboratory experiments, Exam contribute approximately 30% of all assessments on the course.
The programme of assessment aims to measure the skill and competence of the individual student by means of a structured and integrated approach to a defined coursework schedule.
The assessment strategy has been devised to reflect the diverse nature of the module content with a balance between those modules assessed through assignments, coursework and oral presentations.
