Aeronautical engineering represents the branch of engineering that deals with the research, design, development, construction, testing, science and technology of aircraft. The field also covers investigation into aerodynamic characteristics of aircraft, including behaviors and related factors like airfoil, control surfaces, lift and drag.
In recent years, aeronautical engineering has become one of two major and overlapping branches of Aeronautical Engineering, with Astronautical Engineering being the second. If you’re fascinated by the history and methodology behind flying machines – from Leonardo Da Vinci’s early conceptual sketches and the Wright Brothers’ famous flight of 1903 through to the sophistication and progress of modern jets – aeronautical engineering could be the degree for you. You’ll need being highly competent in mathematics and physics to apply – expect your competency in these two subjects to be rigorously tested.
