DEN4005: Exploring Aerospace Engineering for 2012/13
The module aims to engage students in various topics closely associated with aerospace engineering with emphasis on the application of materials. These topics include development, flight testing, aerodynamics, structures, failure, reliability, control, propulsion, maintaining operations, environmental impact. Examples will be used from current and future activities within the aerospace sector.
A number of group projects will be undertaken by the students to give them a practical understanding of some of the important aspects of aerospace engineering. Lectures delivered by specialists in the School and elsewhere will be given in many of the specialised topic areas listed above.
