This four-year course combines years one, two and four of our MEng Aerospace Engineering with the chance to spend your third year in Europe.

Years one and two cover underpinning material organised into three streams:

  • aerodynamics
  • dynamics and control
  • structures and materials.

These subjects are specialised from year one and are taught with aerospace applications and examples.

You will also learn skills that cross all the streams, such as computing, systems engineering and design, and language units to prepare you for your year abroad.

If you achieve the required grades in your first two years you will spend your third year at a European institution, where you will study in the language of your host country. These studies will be equivalent to the third year at Bristol.

You will return to Bristol for your fourth year and choose from a range of options. Some options relate to particular application areas, such as helicopter aerodynamics, space systems or wind power. Others study particular technologies, such as composites analysis or experimental aerodynamics, or you can choose to undertake a research project.

This course combines the challenging and broad academic content of our aerospace engineering degrees with an overseas dimension which reflects the pan-European nature of the modern aerospace industry.

This course is accredited by the following organisations

The Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.

Course structure

First-year students studying Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, and Engineering Design all start their degree with a broad knowledge of the fundamentals and a command of the skills that underpin modern engineering.

You will share common units with your peers in other disciplines and work on an interdisciplinary project, based on global challenges and inspired by Engineers Without Borders.

You will meet and work closely with more people from the start of your degree, broadening your social circle and long-term professional network. Interdisciplinary working is now the norm in industry, and good understanding of disciplines other than your own will serve you well when you enter the workplace.

Starting your degree with a broad foundation of knowledge will expand your frame of reference, enabling you to be more creative as you progress with your programme and become more specialist in later years of study. The skills-based approach will provide you with technical abilities that will enable you to be successful in your degree and your career.
