Integrated Master's Degree in Aerospace Electronic Engineering (MEng)

Develop the skills to work on future interplanetary missions, or create new electronic systems for unmanned air vehicles. On this course, you'll explore the emerging technologies in aerospace engineering. You'll take group and individual projects to gain valuable technical and professional experience. Whatever topics you choose, you'll be well prepared for a career in the aerospace industry.

MEng Aerospace Electronic Engineering looks at the electronic systems that are vital for aircraft and spacecraft.

On this 4-year integrated master's, you'll learn essential engineering skills and specialise in aerospace topics, such as:

  • flight mechanics
  • navigation and control
  • GPS and radar techniques

Our expert academics bring industry experience to the classroom. They have worked on projects with NASA and the European Space Agency.

As part of your electronic engineering for aerospace degree you can:

  • design and build your own electronic circuits, systems and computer software
  • use our research facilities, including a computer laboratory, high-voltage lab and a £110m clean room
  • take part in a group design project, where you'll work for an industry or academic customer
  • develop your enterprise skills with help from our startup supporter, Future Worlds
  • study engineering management and law to help your career

You can take this course with an additional year-long, paid placement.

This degree is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
