Aerospace and Aeronautical Engineering is a highly-advanced discipline that explores how flight is possible, how flying vehicles are manufactured, powered, operated, controlled and maintained. This programme provides you with the practical training and commercial acumen you will need to succeed in this high-technology field.
The BEng (Hons.) in Aerospace Technology is a three-year programme designed to offer a stimulating, dynamic, and high quality vocational course in aerospace and aeronautical engineering. This programme prepares learners for various jobs and careers in the airline industry on aircraft acquisitions, planning, configuration and maintenance.
The following qualification is also available as exit award of the BEng (Honours) in Aerospace Technology.
• Higher National Diploma in Aeronautical Engineering – 2 Years
Why enrol on this programme?
The BEng (Hons.) in Aerospace Technology is a three year programme based on the British model for higher education awards. During those three years learners will receive a broad education and application in all Aerospace disciplines, such as aerodynamics, flight mechanics, propulsion, structures and systems.
From the very first day of studying at our University, Learners will use the aircraft as objects of study in order to gain knowledge about learning skills. As the programme progresses, the emphasis shifts gradually from theory to application. Lectures alternate with seminars, laboratory courses and projects where you put the knowledge you have acquired into practice. The paradigm of the programme is skill-based with less focus on theory and more on coursework and application.
The Aerospace industry has many exciting opportunities - from design and construction to maintenance and operations. The BEng(Hons.) in Aerospace Technology programme will provide learners with the skills and knowledge to pursue these opportunities. Learners will develop the technical skills required to maintain 21st century Aviation and Aerospace fleets into the future. Students will learn how to inspect, maintain, troubleshoot, diagnose, develop and repair aircraft discrepancies using highly-advanced equipment and techniques.
This programme aims to equip graduates with the skills to become successful engineers and engineering managers, both in aerospace and the wider engineering industry. Graduates of this programme have gone on to become aircraft maintenance engineers, planning engineers, design engineers, quality engineers and engineering managers for a wide variety of companies. Some have chosen to become pilots. Graduates may choose to pursue a higher education (Master’s and PhD degrees) in several engineering areas that include Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering.
Not only will students learn comprehensive theory, but EAU will also provide the means to gain practical experience in well-equipped laboratories and workshops as well as hands on experience in a real workplace environment through on job training and internships where applicable.

Accreditation for Prior Learning (APL):
(APL) is an academic process that recognises and values your previous study.
(APL) is allowed in Year 1 and Year 2, but not Year (3). I.e. you can skip modules from the first year and even the second year in case you did similar modules in another institution. But you cannot skip any module from the 3rd year.
Mode of delivery
Full-time, and semester-based.
