Aeronautical engineers apply their knowledge and skills to every aspect of flight vehicles; from design, development and manufacture, to maintenance and operation.

This degree was developed in close consultation with industry and the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) to boost your employability. The MEng meets the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer status in full, while the BEng requires a period of further learning.

You’ll study the theoretical and technical principles needed for an engineering career in the aviation industry, and you’ll gain practical experience on campus in our Aerospace Centre. You can even take to the skies with flying lessons in your final year. Work placements and experience are a key part of this course, along with visits to sites such as GE Aviation Wales, Airbus Filton, and British Airways Maintenance Cardiff (BAMC).

Progress to an integrated Masters course
You may have the opportunity to progress to the MEng course which combines the undergraduate degree (BEng) with a Masters-level qualification.

Don’t worry if you do not meet these requirements, we run a number of courses to prepare you for academic studies.


Year One
Year one provides you with basic knowledge of routine mathematical methods,essential scientific principles, and engineering practices. It is your introduction to the use of design tools, manufacturing and workshop techniques, health and safety protocols, project management and professional practice.

Mathematics for Engineers
Electrical and Electronic Principles 1
Design and Manufacture
Professional Practice for Engineers
Engineering Mechanics 1
Thermofluids for Engineers
Year Two
In your second year, you will begin to explore key areas such as aerodynamics and flight mechanics, supported by further mathematics and mechanics. You will develop a practical engineering base through group work on aircraft design, and understand regulatory and environmental requirements.

Further Mathematics for Engineers*
Business and Finance for Engineers*
Engineering Mechanics 2
Engineering Material Science
Aircraft Systems & Performance
Design for Aeronautical Engineers
Year Three
Year three modules cover a range of technical subjects including stability and control,propulsion, aircraft materials and structures,and modelling techniques. The modules allow you to evaluate and analyse key challenges in aeronautical engineering and devise costeffective solutions. You will learn about planning, operations, regulations, health and safety, and management, which are important issues within aeronautical engineering. You will also have flying lessons and complete a project in a topic of your choice.

Finite Element Analysis*
Computational Fluid Dynamics*
Aircraft Maintenance Management*
Aircraft Materials*
Aircraft Structures*
Aircraft Stability and Control
Individual Project (BEng) – 30 credits
*10 credit module

The above information is a sample module description for illustrative purposes. Modules and module content may change from time to time.

Learning and teaching methods
You will be taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials, practical laboratory sessions and seminars. You will also need to devote time to self-study, such as conducting research and preparing for your assessments and lectures.

You will also have the opportunity to visit sites such as Rolls Royce, GE Aviation, British Airways Maintenance Cardiff (BAMC) and Airbus, and learn from guest lectures delivered by senior industrialists from the Ministry of Defence, BAMC, Augusta Westland and the RAeS, on current technological advancements in the field. We also encourage our students to take a year out in industry and can help you arrange this through our industrial links.
