Engineering graduates are in greater demand than ever. Many career options are available to you because of the broad and diverse nature of Aerospace Engineering. These include the aerospace, space, defence, automotive, biotechnology, computing, electronics, energy and manufacturing sectors. If you’re interested in the scientific and mathematical aspects of the discipline, you can carry on into a career in research and teaching, including postgraduate aerospace research degrees at UCLan.
You will be entering a diverse and exciting area of technology where you will benefit from UCLan’s investment in the Engineering Innovation Centre which is due to open in 2017. UCLan’s Aerospace Society organises invited lectures, events, visits and competitions and during your studies you will be encouraged to join the Royal Aeronautical Society and to participate in local branch events.
You’ll have the chance to undertake a year-long industrial placement before your final year. We will support you through the application process in order to help you to secure a placement that is related to aerospace engineering. This is a great opportunity for you to broaden your horizons and to consoli
date your learning. And the experience will be invaluable when you return to UCLan, as well as giving you a significant advantage in your employability and early career development.
You can either apply for MEng Aerospace Engineering (UCAS Code 6L13) or MEng Aerospace Engineering with Industrial Placement (UCAS Code 4Q67). You would have the option to transfer from one course to the other, depending on you are successful in gaining a placement. Note that the academic content of both courses is identical.
