- Become an aerospace engineer and be at the forefront of modern technology and mechanics developing rockets and spacecraft, aircraft or aerospace equipment. Help improve green and fuel-efficient technologies or examine airworthiness and flight handling in normal and emergency situations.
- UniSQ’s aerospace specialisation has two sub-disciplines – the Mechanical strand and the Electrical and Electronic strand – which both fall within the Engineers Australia national Engineering Register Areas of Practice. You can hone your expertise further in the Mechanical strand and specialise in Aerodynamics and Propulsion, or Aerospace Transport Structures.
- The two Mechanical strands explore hydraulic systems, advanced aerodynamics, simulations, and propulsion systems; or strength of aerospace transport structures under static and dynamic loading, simulations, and assessment of damage. Both strands build skills to apply aircraft modifications.
- You’ll study aviation systems in the Electrical and Electronic strand, including navigation, communication, human-machine interfaces, specialist electronics design and intelligent sensor networks, and gain skills applicable to aerospace system design, maintenance, training and simulation.
- The research project and dissertation in this degree can be a stepping stone to both industry careers in the Australian space programs or further research degrees, such as a PhD.
- UniSQ leads the iLAuNCH program, a collaboration of three universities and 20+ industry partners to boost Australia’s sovereign space capability. UniSQ has a growing presence in the aerospace field through research projects at the Institute of Advanced Engineering and Space Sciences and the Centre for Future Materials.
