University of Glasgow

Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Aeronautical Engineering

Aeronautical Engineering is a highly-advanced discipline that explores how flight is possible and how flying vehicles are designed, manufactured, powered, operated and controlled. You will learn to analyse and understand the vehicles’ behaviour, performance, propulsion and power systems, as well as perform detailed design of structural components.

This programme will focus on the advanced concepts of aeronautics. These include flight dynamics and control, aircraft vibration and aeroelasticity, structures and materials, and high-speed aerodynamics. An exciting feature of the programme is a visit to Glasgow where you will carry out a preliminary aircraft design project and perform aerofoil experiments in a large-scale wind tunnel.

Career Opportunities
Aeronautical Engineers will have a strong foundation in aero and fluid dynamics as well as structures and materials of flight vehicles. This prepares them for careers in industries such as aeronautics, propulsion, offshore drilling, renewable energy and automotives.

Students studying in the University of Glasgow (UofG) degree programmes are required to complete a four-week attachment in Glasgow at the home campus of the University of Glasgow, U.K., where they will undertake a 10-credit group design/practical module, experience a different culture and interact with students there. Some industrial visits and guest lectures may be organised by the University of Glasgow. The estimated cost ranges from S$4,500* to S$5,500*.

Note: Estimated costs are dependent on the prevailing currency exchange rate and flight ticket prices.

“OIP is an eye-opener for me as I have not been exposed to other culture and ways of life. It is a good experience to be able to work with current students in Glasgow and sharing knowledge” -- Randall Tan, Mechatronics

“It was an unforgettable and eye-opening experience to see the lovely culture of Glasgow; the friendly people and slower pace of life. I was also in awe of the serenity and breath taking beauty of Scotland. It will be forever etched in my mind.” -- Ziyi Poh, Mechanical Design Engineering

“Sharing the summer of 2012 in Glasgow was definitely the highlight of the year. Being in a land where the sun rises at 4am and sets at 10pm, I was amazed by what Glasgow had to offer. The University, too, was a sight to behold, with its exterior representing a castle as though carved out from the movies. I am very proud to be a student of the University, and words just cannot describe how fortunate I was to have had this experience.’ – Khairul Anwar Bin Ahmad Samson, Mechatronics
