What will you study?
Aerospace Engineering at Adelaide is a four year degree. The first two years of Aerospace Engineering are identical to those of Mechanical Engineering. They include Mathematics and Physics and introduce design, structure and forces, thermodynamics, control and programming, as well as practical experience in the form of hands-on laboratory work and a design and build project.
The final years provide a more complex understanding of these skills and are directed towards their use in the aerospace industry. In the final year students are allowed to select subjects from a list of electives, some of which are offered by other departments. A final year project gives students the chance to integrate the skills they have learnt and to obtain practical experience.
