About Aerospace Engineering at Sheffield Hallam University

This course is for people wanting a career at the highest level of engineering. It gives you the skills and knowledge to work in product development or senior management within the aerospace industries. The demand for mechanical engineers in aerospace technologies is growing. There are extensive opportunities open to people that can apply modern engineering technology. The knowledge and core skills you gain are not specific to the aerospace industries. They also apply to the wider mechanical engineering industry, increasing your employment opportunities. The first year builds a foundation of mathematics and engineering principles, underpinning your knowledge and fundamental skills. The basic principles of flight, aircraft design and control are introduced, and you cover engineering practice and personal skills development. The second year starts to apply core mechanical engineering principles, analysis and design to airframe structures, propulsion systems, flight control and instrumentation. We introduce you to the specialist engineering materials used in airframe and engine construction. You also study business and management to broaden your knowledge of the commercial aspects of the engineering industry, and further develop your mathematics and computer modelling skills. In year three you can take an optional one year work placement. This may involve working in areas such as a design department, a manufacturing organisation or in commercial research and development. You are able to apply the knowledge gained on the course to commercial engineering practice, gain new skills and learn how industry works. We help you to find a placement and negotiate a sensible salary. In the final year, you continue to develop your understanding of the core aerospace themes of aircraft design and manufacture, flight aerodynamics and control and propulsion systems. You are also introduced to the elements of astronautics, such as considering an aircraft jet engine design in detail. The culmination of your final year is a major personal project. This allows you to apply your knowledge, understanding, skills and qualities to an aerospace topic of your choice.
