Bristol has a long history of association with the aerospace industry, which places us in a geographically excellent position; for example, only 6km away from the main university precinct are Airbus, Rolls-Royce, GKN, BAE Systems, and MBDA.

Airbus, AgustaWestland and Astrium (now Airbus Defence & Space) are partners in our group design project, which means their engineers provide in-depth technical input and support for the design groups.
