Career perspectives

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.
