This degree has been accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council. Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
Bristol has a long history of association with the aerospace industry, which places us in a geographically excellent position; we’re only six kilometres away from Airbus, Rolls-Royce, GKN, BAE Systems and MBDA. This benefits both our teaching and research. Airbus, AgustaWestland and Astrium (now Airbus Defence and Space) are partners in our group design project, which means their engineers provide in-depth technical input and support for the design groups.
The Industrial Liaison Office is able to help arrange contacts and placements in your first year, aided by the rich variety of employers in our vicinity. Being close to the heart of aerospace in the UK brings substantial benefits for your education and future employability.
