Welcome to Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering
Welcome to the Department of Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering at Loughborough University.
Our Department is one of very few that brings together the excitement and challenge of both aeronautical and automotive engineering. Our reputation for excellent teaching and topical research is built on a long and successful history. Automotive engineering started in 1919 and Aeronautical in 1935.
From small beginnings we are now housed in a purpose built, £14M facility that includes laboratories, workshops, wind-tunnels, a flight simulator and a technical display area where a recently retired military aircraft takes pride of place. We currently have 600 undergraduate students and 70 research students.
The department scored 23/24 in its most recent teaching quality assessment.
The department offers two advanced MSc postgraduate courses.
Research activities within the department covers a wide range of topics.
