Aerospace Systems

Career prospects

A degree in Aerospace Engineering equips you with a wide range of skills relevant to modern engineering.  The constant demand for the renewing of aircraft and the increase in the complexity of aircraft systems leads to a demand for aerospace systems engineers, with a wide spectrum of career opportunities in the fields of software and hardware design, simulation and expert systems.  Past graduates have gained employment with companies such as QinetiQ, Logica, BAE Systems, Thales and Unisys, while a number of graduates have proceeded to postgraduate research in this specialised and expanding branch of engineering.

The School of Engineering is one of only three in the UK selected by BAE Systems for 'preferred' status, which has favourable implications for industrial involvement in the programme and for jobs with the company.
