There is a common first year, and opportunity for you to transfer to the MEng course
Typically, you take  lectures and tutorial
 classes in the mornings, with laboratory classes on some afternoons. Active learning is included in some courses through a range of small, problem-bachelorsed projects. This is complementary to the taught elements and is both challenging and fun.
Through the mix of learning - from transitional lectures to team work and problem-solving - you will obtain:
A thorough understanding of engineering science or construction through application of your knowledge
The ability to deal with the multidisciplinary nature of modern engineering
A creative approach to problem-solving
The self-motivated approach required for success in university education
The interpersonal and management skills needed when working in teams to fixed deadlines.
The methods of assessment vary widely to suit the nature of the course unit and the material being produced by the students.
Examinations are held where appropriate; however, emphasis is placed on continuous assessment, including reports, posters, presentations and vivas, especially during the first two years and for project work.
Major pieces of coursework are double marked and moderated by external examiners to maintain objectivity and uniformity in the assessment procedures. Examples of Coursework and Assessment are available on individual Unit Specifications.
The first year establishes a strategic overview of the main areas of aerospace engineering and introduces the underlying science and mathematics.  Second and third years develop the key knowlege and understanding necessary to enter industry, or postgraduate study.  The fourth year (for MEng students) provides specialisation in engineering and consolidates practical experience via an advanced aerospace design project.
Introduces you to aricraft flight, spacecraft flight and aerospace systems, as well as modelling and simulation.  You will also gain the bachelorsic knowledge and skills that are applicable to all areas of engineering such as mechanics, heat, fluids, design, management and mathematics.  All subjects are taught in a challenging and active learning environment.

I originally decided to study Aerospace Engineering because I was fascinated by aviation technology and wanted to pursue a career which would be rewarding and exciting.
The staff and facilities at the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil engineering are excellent. Not only can you expect the equipment and teaching to fully support your academic studies, but there are also many opportunities for personal development through mentoring other students and leading or being a member of a society or taking part in an industrial partnership. Importantly, it is well known that as a University student, it is not all work. Living in Manchester gives you plenty of choice when it comes to activities and having a good time.
My Industrial Experience year at Rolls-Royce was invaluable. I was able to get an early insight into how the theory learnt in the first two academic years can be applied to develop some truly iMasterssive technology and products. The experience also helped me in my final two years during the challenges faced in my individual and group projects.
Having thoroughly enjoyed my time at the University of Manchester, I completed my course and I am now employed in an engineering role at Rolls-Royce. The skills and knowledge I gained at University have allowed me to enter into an exciting industry with opportunities to travel and live abroad. An Aerospace Engineering degree from The University of Manchester is a solid foundation for a future career in Engineering and other fields.
