MEng (HK00), BEng (H401), MEng (H400), BEng (H421)
Aerospace Engineering at QMUL is offered as either a 3 year BEng or a 4 year MEng. Both degrees are accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society, which means students can progress to chartered engineer status (CEng). The BEng and the MEng degree are identical up to the end of year 3. Students with an overall average mark of greater than 60% at the end of year 3 are able to progress onto the 4th year of the MEng degree.
We also offer both the BEng and the MEng degrees 'with Industrial Experience' where students take a year working in a related industrial position. Students are paid by the company during this year which also counts towards their degree. This exciting opportunity gives students a valuable insight into future careers and enhances employability.
Whilst at University, students gain a solid foundation in engineering by studying core engineering modules such as maths, stress analysis, design and fluid mechanics. In addition, students take specialist Aerospace Engineering modules starting in year 1 but increase throughout the degree programme. In years 3 and 4, students are able to choose their modules from a broad range of Aerospace Engineering course options (see the table below). This allows students to tailor their degree programme to match their own engineering interests and intended career intentions.
Throughout the degree, course material is delivered through a combination of lectures, tutorials, laboratory practicals, problem-based learning and a variety of coursework. In addition, students undertake two major projects: an individual research project in the third year and a group design project in the 4th year (see separate pages for more information). In the recent National Students Survey (NSS) Aerospace Engineering was ranked 2nd in the country and the best in London.
The following structure is given for the 'MEng with Industrial Experience' although the modules in each year are identical for other programmes. This structure is currently correct but may be subject to change in the future.
The numbers in brackets indicate the academic level of each module, where a typical first year module is delivered at a level 4, whilst a master's module is delivered at level 7.
