Aeronautical engineers are the highly skilled specialists who develop, maintain and modify aircraft, their components and the systems that enable them to fly.
It’s an exciting career, with opportunities in both civil and military aviation, and with the potential to move into related fields like aerospace engineering and manufacturing engineering.
In 1909, we became the first institution in the UK to introduce Aeronautical Engineering courses, and our long-established connections with the industry locally, nationally and globally, open up opportunities for work placements and the potential for a career with leading employers.
We will help you develop the skills to design, analyse and test aeronautical and aerospace vehicles and associated technology.
Aeronautics courses benefit from recently redeveloped facilities with modern teaching lecture theatres equipped with the latest interactive AV systems.
The A320 cockpit flight simulator is a dynamic virtual learning environment, that provides more procedure trainer information and enhancing safety and efficiency to our student pilots and engineers.
City's Merlin MP520 simulator is fitted with a two-axis motion system and closed cockpit design for greater immersion and is used in the theory and study of aerodynamics and the mechanics of flight.
Our Engineering labs are equipped with state-of-the-art wind tunnels and test equipment.
This is a one-of-a-kind low-turbulence wind tunnel used for the study of laminar flows. Part of the National Wind Tunnel Facility.
