In 2016, civil aviation was responsible for transporting 3.8 billion travellers worldwide. The number of passengers is expected to grow at a rate of 3.7% every year, doubling by 2035. Space transport is also becoming increasingly important: an ever larger number of companies is specialising in cheaper sub-orbital and orbital flights, both for leisure and to deliver state of the art satellites. This growing industry will require skilled graduates who will be centre stage in solving important technological challenges.
With this in mind, the University of Birmingham has decided to launch new undergraduate programmes for 2018 entry, based on our extensive experience on the wider field of aerospace engineering. Researchers, lecturers and professors at the University of Birmingham have been leading progress in a number of areas, from the LISA Pathfinder mission to higher-performing jet engines. This, alongside strong collaborations with Rolls-Royce, Airbus, and many other leading companies, will give our graduates a great start towards successful careers.
