This four-year degree combines years one, two and four of our MEng Aerospace Engineering with the chance to spend your third year at an English-speaking partner university abroad.
The first two years cover underpinning material organised into three streams:
- 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 three streams, such as computing, systems engineering and design.
If you achieve the required grades in your first two years and are selected, you will spend your third year at a partner institution abroad, for example in Sweden, Netherlands, the US, Singapore or Australia. Your third-year studies will be equivalent to a third year at Bristol. To find out more about studying abroad, visit Global Opportunities.
You will re-join the course in Bristol for your final year and will choose from a range of topics. Some options relate to particular application areas, such as helicopter aerodynamics, space systems or wind power. Others study particular technologies, such as composites analysis and experimental aerodynamics, or you can choose to undertake a research project.
This degree combines the challenging, broad academic content of all our courses with an overseas dimension that reflects the multinational 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.
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.
