Please help !! Difference aviation and aerospace ??Watch
change to doing Aviation Engineering BEng. I’ve also noticed that Aviation engineering BEng consists of more practical and assignments which I really enjoy compared to Aerospace looking at them online. I’m really stressing and need some Advice pls
I’m studying BEng Aerospace Engineering and I’ve seen a new course offered in my same uni for BEng Aviation Engineering which consists of more practical and less theory which I’m better with. I’m studying at Kingston University
I don’t think so if you look at the different modules it covers stuff like Aerospace engineering, projects and believe that covers the practical side
The "aviation engineering" degree at Kingston only prepares you to work on the business and operations side of the aerospace sector, and only gives you the bare minimum technical background to (potentially) manage engineers.
So you reckon with a Aviation Engineering degree I can still possibly get a good career within aircraft industry and also maybe mechanical engineering role. Can you please give me an idea of some good career options I can go for ?
The aviation engineering role is, as stated, very much going to be on the logistics, operations, management/business side of things, and those are the roles you're likely going to target with that degree.
Oh ok because on the Kingston website under aviation engineering it does mention by the end of the course it can lead you to becoming an incorporated engineer
So your saying It’s no point doing this course or.. as I’ve already gave in the form to change from aerospace to aviation as I was told it Involves more practical projects with aviation. And at any point I can always do a masters in aerospace that way I can have 2 degrees within the aerospace sector whereas you can’t do a masters in aviation.
You can always explain to them that you don't actually want to change after all, if you have changed your mind. The aviation engineering course is a fine course for what it is, it's just important to recognise what the degree entails - if you want to be designing aircraft and aerospace systems, that degree isn't really going to be appropriate.
