    I was wondering what is the difference between these two? They both have a focus on aeronautics but which is better and what nakes them both different?

    I think aeronautical/aero-mechanical has a greater focus on the aero part, but are there any other differences?

    Thanks

    Aeronautical is probably broader and goes into other subjects relevant to aeronautics such as EEE, systems, maybe programming, whereas mechanical with aeronautics is going to be mech eng but with a few modules focusing on, for example, aeronautical propulsion, structures and materials.

    Hi there!

    Aeronautical, Aeromechanical and Mech with Aero can all be different degrees, but it can depend on the institution. Aeronautical will typically be the most aircraft/spacecraft specific degree, most classes will revolve around this. Mech with Aero is typically just a regular mechanical degree but you get extra electives which are aero-related, as Helloworld_95 pointed out. Here at Glasgow we have both Mech with Aero and Aeronautical but the latter is far more applicable to the aerospace industry.

    As for Aeromechanical, I know Strathclyde offers this course and it falls somewhere in between Aeronautical and Mech with Aero. Don't focus on the course name, focus on the course content. Most university degrees will have their content/structure listed so you can view individual classes to get a feel if it's what you're wanting.

    Let us know if you have any other questions
