Year 2

(Award available for year: Diploma of Higher Education)

Learning outcomes

On completion of the year/programme students should have provided evidence of being able to:
- demonstrate a broad understanding of the concepts, information, practical competencies and techniques which are standard features in a range of aspects of aeronautical and aerospace engineering;
- apply generic and specific to aeronautical and aerospace engineering, intellectual qualities to standard situations outside the context in which they were originally studied;
- appreciate and employ the main methods of enquiry in aeronautical and aerospace engineering and critically evaluate the appropriateness of different methods of enquiry;
- use a range of techniques to initiate and undertake the analysis of data and information;
- adjust to professional and disciplinary boundaries;
- effectively communicate information, arguments and analysis in a variety of forms.

Transferable (key) skills

Students will have had the opportunity to acquire, as defined in the modules specified for the aeronautical and aerospace engineering the following:
- qualities and transferable skills necessary for employment related to the aerospace industry;
- skills necessary for the exercising of personal responsibility;
- decision making.


Achievement will be assessed by a variety of methods in accordance with the learning outcomes of the modules specified for the aeronautical and aerospace engineering and will include:
- demonstrating the ability to apply a broad range of aspects/competencies of aeronautical and aerospace engineering to complex yet standard situations and simple yet novel or atypical instances;
- work that is often descriptive in nature but drawing on a wide variety of material;
- demonstrating basic professional competencies relevant to the aeronautical and aerospace industry;
- the ability to evaluate and criticise received opinion.
