    Description

    Becoming a pilot is one of the most exciting and rewarding of career choices. This specialist degree provides an ideal starting point for you to train to become a professional pilot after graduation. It incorporates fundamental practice and theory, but also presents the opportunity to obtain a Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL) and to undertake training in a flight simulator.

    About Mechanical Engineering at Brunel

    From jet aircraft to air conditioning plant, from tunnelling machines to body-scanners, from technical consultancy to financial services such as insurance, mechanical engineers deal with the design and production of the machines, systems and structures that are taken for granted in the modern world.
    The range and diversity of career choice is consequently tremendous. In response to this diversity, we offer a variety of courses.

    Interacting with students from different specialisms and with different interests is an important part of the University experience. To help with this, we have introduced a multidisciplinary project for Level 1 students. This is a design-based competition between teams made up of students from a number of subjects.

    We also offer the Engineering with an Integrated Foundation Year course.

    The range of courses reflects several of our research interests:

    • energy and environmental engineering;
    • internal combustion engines and their fuels;
    • structures and materials;
    • fluid mechanics.

    Aims

    This course has been developed to allow graduates the widest possible range of career options within the aircraft industry. The engineering content is accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, and the pilot training provides the first stepping stone for those hoping to progress to a career as a commercial or military pilot.

    As well as covering flying basics, the degree programme examines wider aspects of the aviation industry, for example airport design (BEng), aircraft operations (MEng) and environmental issues. This aims to prepare graduates for the many career opportunities within the aviation industry, as well as for becoming a commercial pilot.

    Course Content

    Three-year BEng Route

    Level 1 provides grounding in engineering fundamentals and all students will study for the ground examinations for the European Private Pilot’s Licence, including air law, meteorology, principles of flight and human factors. You will also complete the flying training elements of the UK National Private Pilot’s Licence.*

    Levels 2 and 3 will comprise specialist engineering and aerospace subjects, and opportunities exist to continue flying training towards the European JAR-FCL Private Pilot’s Licence, possibly with the addition of either a Night Qualification or an Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC) rating.

    Flight simulation, making extensive use of the University’s flight simulator, is used throughout the course.

    * Because of the cost of undertaking flying training, there is a major additional cost for the Aviation Engineering with Pilot Studies course, although this is payable in Level 1 only. Please contact the Admissions Tutor for more information.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
