Aerospace Engineering is an exciting discipline covering the design and development of all types of aircraft including airplanes, helicopters, satellites and spacecraft. Aerospace engineers bring concepts to reality by applying the principles of engineering to the design, manufacture and operation of highly sophisticated technologies for use in aviation and space exploration. They ensure that aircraft and spacecraft meet safety requirements by creating new and more environmentally-friendly designs and manufacturing methods.
What will I be able to do when I finish the course?
