Aeronautical Engineering is the study of the design, development, manufacture, maintenance and control of machines or vehicles operating in the earth’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.
