Aerospace Engineering is concerned with the design and development of aircraft, helicopters and spacecraft. The skills you will develop on these degrees apply to both future spacecraft and high'performance aircraft in addition to the next generation of ground transport, such as high'speed trains. If you are on the MEng programme you will work on a group project in fourth year; recent examples include the design and construction of a rocket capable of breaking the UK altitude record and the design of a solar'powered racing car. All of our aerospace degree programmes are accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society
