Pre-requisite: Students must be enrolled in the following Program: MENS (Aerospace Engineering specialisation)


This is introductory course to aerospace engineering, and one of the core courses of standard Aerospace Engineering program which provides students to understand the integration of engineering systems and subsystems to build an aircraft and interactive operation of those systems to enable aircraft to operate safely in the wide range of environments experienced in aerospace applications. This is to develop the appreciation of the hostile environmental and safety margins / redundancy in engineering design to minimise consequential adverse and catastrophic outcomes in aerospace design for various typical applications.

All aircraft and space vehicles have a requirement for essential systems to support flight, such as the engine, fuel, lubrication, cooling, electrical shielding, minimisation of energy requirements, re-entry requirements, thermal and high energy atomic particle environmental impacts on materials, landing gear, and environmental control systems. Understanding the systems of aerospace vehicles is critical to their safe operation and proper maintenance, and includes and understanding of the types of data collection and analysis to determine if usual, unusual or critical operational outcomes are in progress. This course covers aerospace systems, subsystem integration and their interaction with material technology issues.
