Aerospace Systems

Why Aerospace Systems?

Systems engineering has long played an vital role in the aerospace industry, but has gained much greater importance in recent years.  Virtually all modern aircraft, from airliners to micro unmanned systems, rely on complex and comprehensive onboard systems.  The Aerospace Engineering degree focuses on the design and use of these systems and how they may be used to improve the operation and performance of aerospace vehicles.

In addition to this, you will be given a comprehensive background in aerospace engineering, covering aerodynamics, fluid mechanics, propulsion and applied mechanics.  The final year of the BEng and the final two years of the MEng allow you to pick specific courses and develop your areas of interest.  You will also be given the opportunity to design, build and flight-test your own unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

The University of Glasgow is the only university in Scotland to offer a degree in Aerospace Systems and both the BEng and MEng degrees are accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society.
