About this program

The Bachelors degree in Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa is an education course which provides a broad overview of engineering and also a dynamic focus on aeronautical engineering.

Wits' full-time, 4-year Bachelors degree in Aeronautical Engineering includes general physics, mathematics, statistical methods, applied computing, numerical methods, and engineering sciences (fluid mechanics, engineering thermodynamics, applied mechanics, electrical engineering, etc.) during the first two years. This knowledge, combined with a laboratory component, intensive research, and problem solving, is referred to as the engineering methods and is used to design new products, systems, devices, and machines.

During their last year of the Bachelors degree in Aeronautical Engineering, students choose a specialisation, in this case, aeronautical engineering. The second half of this year is devoted to a project which includes both design and research. The education curriculum during this last year provides students a broad background in aeronautical engineering, and includes units in aircraft structures, flight dynamics, air transport, and propulsion systems.

Upon completion of the Bachelors degree in Aeronautical Engineering, graduates are well-prepared to either launch successful careers in aeronautical engineering or continue their studies toward a postgraduate degree.
