The Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Aeronautical) develops a comprehensive understanding of the design process and operation of aircraft within the Earth's atmosphere and in space. By combining practical learning and industry experience, this program will equip you for the aerospace industry's next evolution.
As an aeronautical engineering student, you will be taught by leading professionals within the aerospace industry through hands-on learning throughout your degree. You will develop a complex understanding of flight vehicle design, including knowledge of aerodynamics, propulsion systems, structural design, materials, avionics, and stability and control systems.
During your degree you will participate in construction of a light aircraft, developing a multifaceted knowledge of design, operations and aeronautical regulations. Through this process you will also learn that maintaining and operating a flight vehicle requires a deep understanding of materials, reliability and maintenance. This knowledge will equip you to structurally analyse and assess aircraft for repairs.
In your third year you will conduct hands-on experiments with wind-tunnel tests, gain elementary flying experience and design your own industry-style test projects. You will complete a final-year honours thesis that enables you to specialise in a particular aerospace field, such as helicopter design, structural optimisation or experimental aerodynamics.
As part of your degree you will undertake the award-winning Professional Engagement Program enabling you to change your approach to learning through self-reflection and extra-curricular activities throughout your degree.
