Aerospace Engineering including an Industrial Year
Studying aerospace engineering at Nottingham, you will work with first-class engineering staff in a department internationally renowned for the high standard of its graduates. You will learn the fundamentals of aerospace engineering, while also enjoying the freedom to choose from a range of exciting optional modules. We will facilitate your learning with resources such as wind tunnels and flight simulators, enabling you to gain important hands-on experience. You will also have the opportunity to take flying lessons with us, gaining a wider perspective on your appreciation of flight. Furthermore, Nottingham enjoys very well-established links with industry. Our strong ties with companies such as BAE Systems, Boeing and Rolls Royce mean our students enjoy a wealth of opportunity for work experience and career progression throughout the course and beyond.
Applicants to degree programmes will usually be expected to have studied three subjects at A level.
The University recognises that disparities in resources might mean some schools certificate AS levels while other schools do not, as a consequence whilst we value AS levels we will not make any offers on the basis of AS grades.
All conditional offers will ordinarily be made on the basis of three full A levels (some subjects are not included, please see our prospectus) and students will only be required to have achieved a pass in the fourth subject, if taken. The grade achieved in the fourth subject may have significance when an applicant has narrowly failed to achieve the specified grades at A level.
Our admission process recognises that applicants have a wealth of different experiences and may have followed various educational pathways. While our publicity materials generally express entry requirements in terms of A levels, most of our schools and faculties accept a much broader range of qualifications.
Students who require extra support to meet the English language requirements for their academic course can attend a presessional course at the Centre for English Language Education (CELE) to prepare for their future studies. Students who pass at the required level can progress directly to their academic programme without needing to retake IELTS.
All students follow a common programme of study for the first two years, studying core material that provides a solid practical foundation in engineering analysis and aircraft technology with hands-on design exercises and laboratory tests. At the end of year two, you will spend a year working in industry where you will gain first-hand experience of the exciting challenges that are faced by aerospace engineers, and will significantly enhance your technical engineering skills and employability. In year three, students will begin their individual research projects as well as undertaking core modules in engineering management and public engagement, and certification, safety and reliability. There are also a number of specialised optional modules across the aeromechanics, aeroelectrical and general streams.
The University of Nottingham is a public research university and was founded as University College Nottingham in 1881, and was granted a Royal Charter in 1948. Nottingham's main campus (University Park) and teaching hospital (Queen's Medical Centre) are located within...
