Combining Physics and Maths, Aerospace Engineering is the ideal degree for problem-solvers who are fascinated by aircraft, spacecraft, rockets, satellites and Formula 1. Aerospace Engineering is at the cutting edge of technology, understanding and applying scientific principles to the design, development and service of some of the most technologically advanced engineering products in the world.
With aerospace companies including Bombardier and Base on our doorstep, Northern Ireland is a great place to study Aerospace Engineering. Continued growth in air travel coupled with the advent of commercial space travel mean that the Aerospace Engineering industry is booming and our graduates are highly sought-after. As an Aerospace Engineering student at Queen’s, you’ll have frequent opportunities to visit Aerospace companies across Northern Ireland.
Our graduate aerospace engineers have gone on to enjoy success across a diverse range of fields, from commercial aircraft and helicopter development to spacecraft systems and unmanned aerial vehicles; they are leading missions to Mars and the Moon, designing the drones of the future and shaping the future of mobility.
