Focused: Aerospace from day one, every part of our course is tailored to giving you the skills needed to design an aircraft or spacecraft.
Broad: You'll study a range of technical subjects - aerodynamics, structures, materials, systems, design, control - and get experience of making them to work together through projects.
Challenging: Your mathematics and physics will be stretched and you'll have a lot of work to do. You'll need to be a highly motivated individual to keep up.
