Aerospace Engineering

MEng (HK00, sandwich) / MEng (H400) / BEng (H401, sandwich) / BEng (H421)


The First Aerospace (then Aeronautical) Engineering Department in UK was Established at Queen Mary in 1907.

Aerospace Engineering is concerned with the design, construction and operation of aircraft, helicopters and spacecraft. The skills you will develop will apply to future spacecraft and high performance aircraft and also to the next generation of Green Air & Ground Transport, Green Energy such as Wind Turbines and also Biological Fluid Flow.

We offer both a three-year BEng degree in Aerospace Engineering and a four-year MEng degree. The MEng includes an additional year of study that involves a group project, where recent examples of such projects include the design and construction of a rocket capable of breaking the UK altitude record and the design of a solar-powered racing car.

These Aerospace Engineering degree programmes are accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, which means students can progress to chartered engineer status (CEng).
