The aerospace industry provides one of the most challenging
environments for the development and testing of new technologies. This
course aims to develop a broad range of systems engineering skills and
is taught with a focus on developing problem-solving skills.
You will learn to apply your knowledge to various aspects of
aerospace systems. Projects are based upon the systems utilised in the
latest military, civil, aircraft, helicopter and space vehicles. We
have invested heavily in aerospace facilities to ensure this course
provides excellent facilities for you to learn on actual aircraft
If you choose this course you will benefit from:
- Accreditation by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) at the time
of going to press but subject to re-accreditation for students
enrolling in 2012. Up-to-date information can be found on Coventry
University and Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) websites
- The opportunity to work on a suite of Merlin flight simulation
- Teaching staff with industrial and research experience in a
variety of disciplines such as aerodynamics, flight dynamics and
avionics and experience of working for Bombardier, Rolls Royce, BAE
and the MOD
- Strong international links. For example, one of our major
international partners is the Emirates Aviation College located in
- Collaborative provision of the Faculty of Engineering and
Computing in 20 countries and links with several hundred universities
around the world.
Your first year builds on your established skills to provide a
foundation of key engineering subjects. You will get an introduction
to aerospace topics such as aerodynamics, power plants, aircraft
systems and structures.
In the second year your aerospace design knowledge is increased. You
will study landing gear design, avionics, flight dynamics, fuel
systems and flight control systems.
Your final year includes an individual project and group design work.
In the group work, students compete as part of a team to produce a
demanding system design.
