- Advanced Materials and Manufacture
You will look at a range of modern engineering materials and develop an awareness of the selection criteria for aeronautical and mechanical engineering applications. You will also look at a range of “standard” and modern manufacturing processes, methods and techniques.

- Lean Maintenance Operations & Certification
This module will help you develop and understand concepts in Six Sigma, lean maintenance, operational research, reliability centred maintenance and maintenance planning. You will evaluate and critically analyse processes within highly regulated industries.

- Safety, Health and Environmental Engineering Management
Covering the principles and implementation of the safety, health and environmental management within the workplace, you will look at key concepts in human cognition and other human factors in risk management and accident/incident investigation. You will also gain an understanding of the role of stakeholder involvement in sustainable development.

- Strategic Leadership and Management for Engineers
This module will explore a range of purposes and issues surrounding successful strategic management and leadership as well as appraising a range of leadership behaviours and processes that may inspire innovation, change and continuous transformation within different organisational areas including logistics and supply chain management.

- Research Methods for Engineers
The aim of this module is to provide you with the ability to determine the most appropriate methods to collect, analyse and interpret information relevant to an area of engineering research. To provide you with the ability to critically reflect on your own and others work.

- Individual Project
You will undertake a substantial piece of investigative research work on an appropriate engineering topic and further develop your skills in research, critical analysis and development of solutions using appropriate techniques.

Learning and teaching methods

You will be taught through a variety of lectures, tutorials and practical laboratory work.

You will have 10 contact hours per week, you will also need to devote around 30 hours per week to self-study, such as conducting research and preparing for your assessments and lectures.

Work Experience and Employment Prospects

Aerospace engineering is an area where demand exceeds supply. As a highly skilled professional in aircraft maintenance engineering, you will be well placed to gain employment in this challenging industry. The aircraft industry is truly international, so there is demand not only in the UK, but throughout the world.

Careers available after graduation include aircraft maintenance planning, engineering, materials, quality assurance or compliance, technical services, logistics, NDT, method and process technical engineering, aircraft or engine leasing, aviation sales, aviation safety, reliability and maintainability, operations and planning, airworthiness, technical support, aircraft surveying, lean maintenance, certification, production planning and control.

Assessment methods

You will be continually assessed coursework or a mixture of coursework and exams. The dissertation allows you to research a specific aviation engineering topic, to illustrate your depth of knowledge, critical awareness and problem-solving skills. The dissertation has three elements of assessment: a thesis, a poster presentation, and a viva voce examination.

Facilities

The aerospace industry has become increasingly competitive and in recognising this, the University has recently invested £1.8m into its aerospace facilities.

Facilities available to our students have been fully approved by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). With access to an EASA-approved suite of practical training facilities, our students can use a range of industry-standard facilities.

Our Aerospace Centre is home to a Jetstream 31 Twin Turboprop aircraft, assembled with Honeywell TPE331 Engines and Rockwell-Collins Proline II Avionics. It has a 19-passenger configuration.

The EASA-approved suite contains training and practical workshops and laboratories. Each area contains the tools and equipment required to facilitate the instruction of either mechanical or avionic practical tasks as required by the CAA.

Students use the TQ two-shaft gas turbine rig to investigate the inner workings of a gas turbine engine by collecting real data and subsequently analysing them for engine performance.

Our sub-sonic wind tunnel is used for basic aerodynamic instruction, testing and demonstrations on various aerofoil shapes and configurations.

The single-seater, full motion, three axes Merlin MP521 flight simulator can be programmed for several aircraft types that include the Airbus A320 and the Cessna 150.
