Aerospace Engineering modules cover a number of related disciplines, all of which are necessary to create a full engineering team. They include fluid mechanics, mathematics, software design, propulsion and materials science. An emphasis on technical and management skills, as well as maths, physics and fluid mechanics, means that other branches of engineering and research are open to graduates.
Aerospace Engineering graduates find roles in areas such as aircraft and component design, aircraft manufacture, maintenance and testing, flight simulation, patent engineering, systems engineer and structures engineer.
Aerospace Engineering employment opportunities are available at a range of different companies involved in the design and manufacture of aircraft and associated aspects of the industry. Huge companies such as Rolls-Royce Engines, British Airways, Airbus, BAE Systems and the Ministry of Defence constantly look at UK Aerospace Engineering graduates when recruiting.
