The only Russell Group university to combine Aeronautics and Astronautics degrees

Master of Engineering in Aeronautics & Astronautics

Master of Engineering in Aeronautics & Astronautics (2+2)

Our Aeronautics and Astronautics graduates are in high demand from some of the world’s leading companies.

Aeronautics and Astronautics covers advanced aeronautics and space applications, preparing you to design future aircraft, race cars, jet engines, satellites and rockets. In your first two years, you will gain a solid foundation in aerospace engineering such as aerodynamics, astronautics and propulsion along with a wider appreciation of the economic, legal and environmental issues associated with aircraft operations and aircraft performance.

In your final two years you can choose from a broad range of subjects, including modern languages.
