Aerospace Engineering Degrees

The 2019 National Student Survey ranked our Aerospace Engineering courses top in Wales and 6th in the UK 

Aerospace Engineering degrees at the University of South Wales offer excellent opportunities for a career in engineering, so you can enter the profession with the right knowledge and skills.

Our strong links with industry mean you’ll have many opportunities to engage with companies during your studies. These include site visits, industrial placements and, for students on sandwich courses, practitioner mentoring.

The School of Engineering has specialist facilities that provide exciting learning spaces for our students. Aircraft Maintenance Engineering students benefit from the £3.3m extension to our Aerospace Centre. The Centre includes two aircraft hangars, allowing hands-on experience of Rolls Royce Spey engines, plus our own fullsize BAE Jetstream 31 and a Jet Provost aircraft.

Students on our Aeronautical Engineering courses have access to a MP521 flight simulator where they can try out the flight characteristics of their aircraft designs. They can also use a fully instrumented wind tunnel and gas turbine engine, as well as materials testing and control laboratories.
