Aeronautical Engineering is the study of the design, development, manufacture, maintenance and control of machines or vehicles operating in the earthÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s atmosphere or in outer space. The design of flight vehicles is a complex process that demands knowledge of many engineering disciplines, including aerodynamics, propulsion systems, structural design, avionics, and stability and control systems. Maintaining and operating a flight vehicle requires an understanding of materials, reliability and structural analysis, along with knowledge of the design process. You will study engineering practice and design, computational problem-solving, programming, mathematics, physics, engineering materials, aircraft and systems design, cyber security, and applied thermodynamics and propulsion. You will spend at least 60 days gaining practical experience in the workplace and undertake a capstone research project in your final year.
