Course overview

The aviation industry is a huge and diverse one, employing engineers across multiple disciplines.  The aerospace engineering degree prepares you for a career in the industry by providing knowledge on how aircraft are designed, constructed, powered, used, and controlled for safe operation.

You will also develop skills in management, airworthiness and aviation regulations through a number of additional courses.

As an aerospace engineer, you will have career opportunities in the design and manufacture of civil and military aircraft or within the technical departments of airlines

Special features

The BEng Aerospace Engineering course equips graduates with core scientific and engineering knowledge, practical laboratory skills, team working, problem solving and other transferable skills needed to pursue careers as professional aerospace engineers, and a diverse range of other career options in the aviation industry.

Graduates will have the status of a professional engineer. As a result of their international exposure, they will be in demand from a range of aerospace fields both locally and globally

Course structure

The degree is offered as a three of four-year programme depending on your entry qualification.

  • For domestic students, the course structure follows the Chinese higher education system and is based on a four-year programme.
  • For international students, with relevant qualifications, the course structure follows the UK higher education system and is based on a three-year programme.

Students have the option to study the whole course in China (3+0 or 4+0) or spend their last two years at The University of Nottingham, UK (1+2 or 2+2).

Accreditations

These courses are new, and as such, they can't be fully accredited yet.

However, both at UNUK and UNNC, we are seamlessly working with the relevant professional bodies to ensure full accreditation.

Once the first cohort has graduated, the courses will be accredited by the UK’s Royal Aeronautical Society, the UK’s Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the UK’s Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). These are all under licence from the UK’s primary regulator known as the UK Engineering Council.

Careers and further study

Once graduated, you will have the status of a professional engineer, and as a result of your international exposure, you will be in demand from a range of aerospace fields both locally and globally.

As an aerospace engineer, you will have career opportunities in the design and manufacture of civil and military aircraft, or the technical departments of airlines.
