More than a century since Bristol produced its first aircraft, the South West is now one of the largest centres for aerospace in Europe. The Aerospace Engineering department has close links with major industrial companies, including Leonardo Helicopters, Airbus and Rolls-Royce. Our curriculum is tightly linked to our research and our academics are world leaders in aerodynamics, composites, control, vibrations and systems.
The first two years are devoted to core concepts, taught via lectures and backed up by practical experience through coursework and lab work. In year three greater flexibility is available for you to pursue options that interest you.
In the first two years this course follows the same structure as the BEng in Aerospace Engineering. In years three and four, greater flexibility is available for you to pursue options that interest you.
You can transfer between the BEng and MEng during your first two years, subject to performance. Transfer in the third year is at the discretion of the Faculty and subject to compliance with the University's progression regulations.
You have the opportunity to study in Europe, on the Erasmus+ student exchange programme, in your third year on the MEng in Aerospace Engineering.
This study option is subject to performance.
You have the opportunity to study abroad in your third year on the MEng in Aerospace Engineering.
This study option is based on available overseas placements and subject to performance.
This unique course gives you the opportunity to study bespoke design units, to undertake industrial placements and to work on real-world design projects in partnership with industry.
