Aerospace Engineering at Brunel is part of one of the UK's leading engineering departments at the College of Engineering, Design and Physical Sciences. Our courses will prepare you for a career in one of the most exciting and fast-moving industries in the world today.
The global aerospace engineering industry needs graduates with the skills to take on leadership and managerial positions early in their careers. We nurture these skills through our problem-solving learning philosophy.
You'll be taught by world-renowned academic staff. Our courses balance fundamental mechanical engineering subjects such as mathematics and engineering science with the application of knowledge in the aerospace field.
We are committed to helping you become one of the most capable Aerospace Engineering graduates, ready for a high-flying career. We provide a rigorous and traditional academic education coupled with an appreciation of the highly technical nature of the aerospace industry. You'll have the opportunity to exhibit your projects at our graduate showcase, Brunel Engineers, as well as at other industry-sponsored competitions.
You'll be taught through lectures, laboratory sessions, design studio work and one-to-one supervision. You'll be assessed on assignments, project work, reports on laboratory practicals, oral presentations, tests and written examinations. If you select the sandwich course you'll gain work experience and academic credit. The placement will also fast-track you towards Chartered or Incorporated Engineer status. Brunel's on-campus Professional Development Centre can help you find the placement that is right for you. Brunel is the closest university to London's Heathrow Airport, providing opportunities for site visits and placement and career options.
We are known for developing high-calibre graduates. When you leave us, you will have developed transferable skills relevant to demanding careers in the aerospace, aeronautical and related industries.
Brunel's Women in Engineering and Computing mentoring scheme provides our female students with invaluable help and support from their industry mentors. All students receive support from the University and benefit from our links with industry for career development.
Our students often have several job offers before they graduate. They take up employment in fields such as aircraft and components design and manufacture, maintenance and testing, flight simulation, aviation, avionics and patent engineering. The president and CEO at Airbus Group in the UK is a Brunel engineering alumnus. Others are working for Rolls-Royce, British Airways, BAE Systems, GE Energy, Thales, Bombardier, Lockheed Martin and the Ministry of Defence.
