Admission to BEng (Hons) in Aviation Engineering or BEng (Hons) in Air Transport Engineering

  • Students who wish to enrol in either the BEng (Hons) in Aviation Engineering or the BEng (Hons) in Air Transport Engineering should apply for admission to the BEng (Hons) Scheme in Aviation Engineering.

Deferred Choice between BEng (Hons) in Aviation Engineering and BEng (Hons) in Air Transport Engineering

Students who are admitted to the Scheme study together during the first two years and then pursue their preferred programmes, normally within the next two years, until graduation. This arrangement enables students to choose their study path once they have obtained a solid understanding of the programmes during the first two years.
