Computing and Numerical Methods 2 - AERO50003
The module builds on your prior programming ability, introducing you to programming with a compiled language (C++) and further numerical analysis techniques, which you will need and apply in later years of the Aeronautics course and subsequently in industry. The emphasis of the module is to impart a basic awareness of common pitfalls in applying numerical methods together with a degree of competence in the application of numerical analysis to common model problems, such as the solution of differential equations.
Mechatronics - AERO50007
From aircraft autopilots to satellite communications to re-usable space rockets, mechatronic systems are everywhere in aeronautical engineering. This course aims to give a fundamental grounding in the theory and practice of mechatronic systems relevant to aeronautics, including data acquisition systems, sensors, actuators and control systems.
