Aviation Engineering BEng(Hons): After you graduate

Careers and progression

This course focuses on the key technical and employability skills, and desired attributes required to be a competent aviation engineer. It aligns with the knowledge, skills and behaviours defined in the accreditation of Incorporated Engineering (IEng) programmes by the Royal Aeronautical Society. With the rapid growth of air transport industry, there are strong demands for Incorporated Engineers within the aviation sector. The Aviation Engineering BEng(Hons) graduates are destined to work primarily with airworthiness, aviation management, systems integration, design, support and manufacturing.

Employability skills will be developed through a range of aviation and general engineering modules in the programme. Typical job roles are: maintenance and licensed aircraft engineers, certification, quality assurance, logistics, planning, design, technical services, production and control engineers. The typical employers are the civil aviation, the military and aerospace companies.

In addition to building expertise in your own discipline, our courses will also help you to develop key transferable skills that you'll need for professional life or further study once you graduate. 

As well as a range of careers and employability activities at Kingston, we also offer you the chance to apply and develop your skills in live contexts as an integral part of your course. Opportunities include:

  • placements;
  • working or studying abroad;
  • volunteering;
  • peer mentoring roles; and
  • internship opportunities within and outside the University.

In your final year, you'll get the opportunity to complete a major 'capstone' project where you can apply the knowledge and skills you have acquired to a range of real issues in different contexts. This is a great way to learn and is a valuable bridge to employment or further research at masters level.
