The University of Wolverhampton

BENG(Hons)BEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering with Foundation Year

Why choose this course?

The overall aim of this course is to ensure graduates have a comprehensive engineering education combined with specialist knowledge of aerospace engineering recognised in the professional engineering community by an accredited degree. The first year of study is very much about mastering the underpinning engineering principles, accompanied by an introduction to airframes and aircraft propulsion, engine testing and design. Year two combines mechanical engineering topics, for example thermodynamics and the role of the engineer in society, with specialist topics that include control and aircraft systems, and airflow analysis and simulation. The third year of study includes topics related to supersonic and subsonic aerodynamics, energy and sustainability and new and advanced engineering materials. Should you choose to study the MEng, then specialist topics such as emerging propulsion technologies are accompanied with broadening studies that include business and management accounting, and aircraft and airport operations.

What happens on the course?

Whilst the UK no longer builds complete passenger aircraft, we are leaders in providing aircraft systems. These range from Airbus A380 wings and Boeing Dreamliner thermal management systems to Eurofighter Typhoon wheels and brakes, all powered by Rolls Royce aero engines. The overall aim of this course is to ensure graduates have a comprehensive engineering education combined with specialist knowledge of aerospace engineering recognised in the professional engineering community by an accredited degree.

The first year of study is very much about mastering the underpinning engineering principles, accompanied by an introduction to airframes and aircraft propulsion. Year two combines mechanical engineering topics with specialist modules that include control and aircraft systems, and aircraft and space vehicle structures, together with legislation and regulation frameworks associated with the aerospace industry. You will also study engineering management and learn the role and responsibilities of a professional engineer. The third year of study is again a mix of traditional mechanical engineering subjects, combined with specialist topics such as flight aerodynamics. This is developed further in the MEng to include flight dynamics and control and wind tunnel analysis and verification.

Why Wolverhampton?

Responding to the regional and national shortage of graduate qualified Engineers the University of Wolverhampton is currently investing over £10m in new Engineering facilities at its Telford Innovation Campus and City Campus in Wolverhampton.

New Engineering courses on offer from 2015 share a design that incorporates significant elements of problem and activity-based learning and live industrial project-work. The courses have embedded themes of creativity, employability, professional engineering, and sustainability and the environment. All of our courses are designed to meet the latest standards for accreditation as defined by the Engineering Council.

Students studying Engineering courses will have access to new specialist equipment and technology that is at the forefront of engineering developments. This includes a design and visualisation facility modeled on best-practice in industry, wind tunnels (including a formula-1 specification rolling road wind tunnel), engine test facilities, a composites laboratory, 3-d printing facilities, an electronics and telecommunications laboratory, a metrology laboratory and a materials testing laboratory.

Our aim is for our graduates to be ready for employment. We provide additional opportunities for students to gain employability skills, with employability workshops and awards as part of the course. In addition and to further develop employability skills, we offer ‘Club Activities’. These currently include the IMechE Formula Student Activity, the Human Powered Flight Club, the Flight Simulator Club and the Formula Renault 2l Racing Team Club. These are great fun, and the only conditions to entry are that you need to engage and demonstrate commitment.

All engineering courses are offered from the Telford Innovation Campus, located close to Telford town centre in rural Shropshire. Chemical Engineering is the exception to this, and this is offered at City Campus in Wolverhampton.

Career path

The aerospace field is extensive and services a rapidly expanding and exciting market. Graduates from this course will find many opportunities for well-paid jobs such as designing aerospace components and systems or managing engineers and technicians. The multidisciplinary nature of the subject area provides career opportunities in a broad spectrum of industries, from design and manufacture to process control in the aerospace sector. Graduates may also study for a taught postgraduate degree, MSc, or a research degree, MPhil/PhD, within the School.

Who accredits this course?

Because of re-validation of Engineering Programmes in 2015 we will be presenting all engineering programmes for accreditation from respective professional body in the 2017/18 academic year. Accreditation will be back dated for post 2015 enrolments.

Entry requirements

2018 Entry

  • Applicants will be expected to hold GCSE English, Mathematics and a Technology or Science based subject at grade D/3 or above (or equivalent)
