Aerospace Engineering program structure

Aerospace engineering degree programs will cover largely the same areas wherever you study, however each will be slightly different depending on the country and university.

Most aerospace engineering degrees will include the option of choosing optional or selective modules that mean you can shape your program to suit your interests.

As with most engineering degrees, you can study a BSc, or BEng (Bachelor of Engineering) at the undergraduate level. You might be able to convert a BEng to an MEng (Master of Engineering), which includes an extra year of study and earns you a master’s level degree.

Undergraduate aerospace engineering programs usually last between three and five years, and you can study for a master’s over one or two years. PhD degrees are also available once you have your master’s, and they can take up to four years to complete.

Common modules you’ll study on most programs include:

  • Aeronautics and mechanics
  • Fluid mechanics
  • Engineering design
  • Electrical circuits
  • Thermodynamics
  • Engineering mathematics
  • Flight dynamics
  • Mechanics, structures and materials
