Career opportunities

The current UK shortage of qualified engineering graduates means you will have plenty of career options when you graduate. You can find employment in the fields of aeronautical, mechanical and manufacturing engineering consultancy, research and development or in the armed forces.

Previous graduates have gone on to work for organisations such as Airbus UK, Rolls Royce Engineers, the National Air Traffic Control Service and British Airways, amongst others.

BEng (Hons) Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering (4 years including foundation year)

This is a new option. If you do not meet the entry requirements for the three-year honours degrees, you should consider this option. The engineering department and the University have created a “kick-start year” for students to study for one year, before joining the honours degree.

Entry requirements and applying

BEng

The academic requirement for this honours degree is 240 UCAS tariff points at GCE A Level or Equivalent. (To include A level in mathematics or a relevant science subject or equivalent). Appropriate AS-Level and Level 3 Key Skills qualifications will also be taken into account.

Four-year degrees

Students have the opportunity to study the BEng Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering as a four-year degree including a foundation year. If you do not meet the entry requirements for the three-year bachelors degree you should consider this degree. By incorporating a foundation year, we can bring you up to speed for the demands of a full three-year degree.

If you successfully complete the foundation year, you will be guaranteed a place on the full degree and will join as a first-year student. As the foundation year is not a stand-alone qualification, but part of a programme of study for an honours degree, UK students are eligible to apply for a student loan. The government fee grant for Welsh-domiciled students will also apply.
