Course Information

While much of this course is common with BEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering, this degree specialises in the design of space vehicles, with a particular emphasis on rocket propulsion, space flight control and satellite communication systems. For many of our students, the highlights of the course are the group design projects in the Third / Final Year, where you join with other aerospace students to design a complete aircraft. You’ll also work with astrophysicists to design a space vehicle in conjunction with a major space industry employer.

  • This is a BEng degree course in aerospace engineering with a focus on space technology
  • The University of Hertfordshire has produced aerospace engineers with practical experience of design and development for future aerospace systems
  • Aerospace students from the University of Hertfordshire have previously completed work placement years at companies including: Airbus, Virgin Atlantic Engineering, and BAE Systems
  • You will have access to the best equipment: flight simulator, wind tunnels, specialist laboratories and CAE software
  • You will be offered a flying course at a local flying school with one-to-one instruction on both fixed wing aircraft and helicopters Our aerospace staff have a wealth of industrial experience which gives an applied approach to their teaching and their contacts prove invaluable to graduates seeking employment
  • Recent Aerospace Engineering graduates have gone on to work at organisations including Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, Martin-Baker Aircraft Compnay, and BAE Systems
