About this course

These courses are ideal if you’re interested in the design, construction and operation of aircraft and would like to extend your studies into space.

You’ll examine the challenges of space flight and the benefits of using the space environment. You’ll study aerodynamics, propulsion, structures, dynamics and
materials, the design of spacecraft, payloads and space dynamics, and will carry out a practical rocket design exercise.

If you choose the MEng degree, you’ll continue to deepen and broaden your expertise in Year 4, with studies that include the design, cost, logistical and operational implications of space missions.
