Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace engineers design and launch equipment to help explore our solar system and beyond – and their future prospects are equally vast.

As the only university in South Australia currently offering an aerospace major, we’ll prepare you to take those opportunities through courses in aeronautical engineering, space vehicle design and aerospace structures.

As an aerospace engineer you could find yourself working for aircraft manufacturers, defence, telecommunications or even satellite technology companies on the design, manufacture and innovation of aircraft, spacecraft and associated technology. This could involve you undertaking a range of functions, from assisting with aerodynamics and flight testing, to improving fuel efficiency and safety.
