    Description

    The Airbus 380, the Boeing Dreamliner and the Eurofighter Typhoon each had systems designed and developed in the UK. This course provides you with the skills to join the teams of engineers designing and developing systems for the next generation of aircraft.

    WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

    The aerospace industry provides one of the most challenging environments for the development and testing of new technologies. This course aims to develop a broad range of systems engineering skills and is taught with a focus on developing problem-solving skills.

    You will learn to apply your knowledge to various aspects of aerospace systems. This course gives you skills in designing aircraft components. Projects are based upon the systems utilised in the latest military, civil, helicopter and space vehicles. We have invested heavily in aerospace facilities to ensure this course provides excellent facilities for you to learn on actual aircraft products.

    If you choose this course you will benefit from:

    • accreditation by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) at the time of going to press but subject to re-accreditation for students enrolling in 2013. Up-to-date information can be found on Coventry University and Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) website;
    • the opportunity to work on a suite of Merlin flight simulation equipment;
    • teaching staff with industrial and research experience in a variety of disciplines such as aerodynamics, flight dynamics and avionics and experience of working for Bombardier, Rolls-Royce, BAE and the MOD;
    • strong international links. For example, one of our major international partners is the Emirates Aviation College located in Dubai;
    • collaborative provision of the Faculty of Engineering and Computing in 20 countries and links with several hundred universities around the world.

    Course Content

    Your first year builds on your established skills to provide a foundation of key engineering subjects. You will get an introduction to aerospace topics such as aerodynamics, power plants, aircraft systems and structures.
    In the second year your aerospace design knowledge is increased. You will study landing gear design, avionics, flight dynamics, fuel systems and flight control systems.

    Your final year includes project management, an individual project and group design work. In the group work, students compete as part of a team to produce a demanding system design.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
