Aerospace Engineering work placements

Gain the best start to your graduate career in aerospace engineering with a professional placement.

During your aerospace engineering degree, you have the option to go on a placement, which gives you great exposure to the different disciplines within aerospace engineering such as data analysis, thermofluids and technical drawings. This in turn will boost your CV and future career prospects, as you’ll graduate with a year of work experience already under your belt. 

A dedicated placement tutor from Brunel’s Professional Development Centre will support you throughout the process of applying for your placement, right from when you start building your CV, attending interviews and until your placement is complete.

You’ll benefit from the strong industry links via our academics and their most up-to-date knowledge, giving you the competitive edge when applying for aeronautical placements.

Work placements give you the opportunity to develop your professional, academic and personal potential in a working environment. Not only will you apply your learnings from your degree course, but you’ll learn to be adaptable, confident, digitally savvy and globally minded.

Taken in between your second and third year of studying, you’ll get an insight into your subject area, optional career paths and skills which can dramatically enhance your graduate career chances.

You’ll be supported by your personal tutor and our Professional Development Centre before, during and after your degree. They’ll support you in identifying what type of opportunities you are looking to pursue, be it an aerospace engineer, aerodynamic engineer, aeronautical engineer, mechanical engineer, spacecraft designer, data processing manager or compliance manager.
