**About this course**

Aerospace engineering at Kingston has an innovative curriculum, excellent links with industry and cutting-edge facilities. It is the perfect place to study aerodynamics, propulsion, structures, dynamics and materials.

You’ll put theory straight into practice, applying what you learn to the problems of aerospace design and taking part in a group design project.

We offer both BEng and MEng degrees. The MEng has an extra year of study and can provide a faster route to chartered engineer (CEng) status. It also has the option to integrate an industrial placement with further studies (subject to accreditation by RAeS).
