What will I learn?
Engineering degrees offered by UNSW Canberra aim to provide outstanding engineering education to the future leaders of the Australian Defence Force and civilian students to pursue excellence through contributions to the engineering profession, industry and the community.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Aeronautical Engineering is of four years duration and the degree may be awarded at Honours Class I, Honours Class II, Division I or Honours Class II, Division II. These Honours levels will be displayed on the final testamur. Candidates who do not achieve Honours Class 1 or 2 will receive a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Aeronautical Engineering with no honours level displayed.
Aeronautical engineering is the study of the design, development, manufacture, maintenance and control of machines or vehicles operating in the Earth's atmosphere or in outer space.
The design of a flight vehicle is complex and demands a knowledge of many engineering disciplines such as aerodynamics, propulsion systems, structural design, materials, avionics, and stability and control systems. Maintaining and operating a flight vehicle requires an understanding of materials, reliability and maintenance, structural analysis for necessary repairs, together with knowledge of the disciplines within the design process.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Aeronautical Engineering program has been designed to meet the needs of the Australian Defence Force as Australia's largest aircraft operator and covers the design, and reliability and maintenance of fixed and rotary wing aircraft. Air Force Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Aeronautical Engineering graduates may be involved in the operation and maintenance of aircraft and then become responsible for the airworthiness and modification of aircraft and engines, or the acquisition and introduction of new equipment into the Service. Army Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Aeronautical Engineering graduates are most likely to be involved in the maintenance and repair of the Army's rapidly growing fleet of fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft. Navy Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Aeronautical Engineering graduates are required for maintenance and repair, modifications, operational deployments and airworthiness of Navy's fleet of rotary wing aircraft.
At the end of the program students are expected to meet the graduate attributes of the University and Stage 1 Competencies of Engineers Australia, ready to practise in their chosen profession and with the ingenuity and resourcefulness to meet rapid technological change.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Aeronautical Engineering degrees require a prescribed program structure as determined by the engineering program chosen. Each year of the program comprises a number of School-based courses (identified by the prefix ZEIT) and courses taught by other Schools within UNSW Canberra.
Completion of each year, thereby allowing progression to the next year, is normally achieved by satisfactory progress in each of the courses given in that year. At the discretion of the Head of School, students may be allowed to enrol concurrently in courses from more than one year of the program.
