Course description

The objectives of the Aerospace Engineering programme are:

  • To provide a broad multi-disciplinary education, enabling students to succeed in a wide variety of aerospace related careers.
  • To build a solid understanding in aerodynamics, thermodynamics, computational modelling and analysis, aerospace materials and structures, to enable them to be applied in the analysis and evaluation of engineering problems.
  • To build engineering skills of critical importance when working in industry, including the ability to break a complex engineering problem into its component parts, to be able to understand, evaluate and interpret data, develop arguments and make judgments based on fundamental and advanced concepts relevant to the application of engineering to the aeronautical and aerospace industries.
  • To build awareness of current aircraft and spacecraft design practices by reflecting the latest regulations and standards (e.g. FAA, AIAA, NASA and ESA).
  • To nurture and develop skills in problem solving, communication, working with team members, information retrieval, and the effective use of IT and computational software.

Entry requirements

The entry requirements for the BEng Aerospace Engineering (with a Year in Industry) course are:

AAB-BBB at A level (including Mathematics).

Other recommended subjects include:
Further Mathematics
Design Technology

Variable offers made dependent on subjects studied and all applications are considered on an individual basis, with GCSE grades, AS Level subjects and grades, work experience, references and personal statement taken into account.

Or 32 at IB to including 5 at Higher Level or 6 at Standard Level Mathematics and 4 at Higher Level or 5 at Standard Level English Language.

Students studying for BTEC qualifications in relevant subjects require D*D*D* - D*D*D, to include B at A Level Mathematics. If they are not taking A Level Mathematics, they must achieve a minimum D in 'Mathematics for Technicians' and D in 'Further Mathematics for Technicians' modules of the BTEC. Students are also required to have minimum two A grades at GCSE, to include a minimum grade B in Mathematics and two other Science subjects.

Find out the entry requirements for an international student.

Students with industrial experience and qualifications will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you have studied access or vocational qualifications, you are advised to apply for the Integrated Foundation Year.

If you are applying for Level Two (second year) entry, in order to be considered, you will need to have already covered the topics offered in Swansea at Level One (first year) in a certified qualification, with a high overall score.
