UK Accredited Aerospace Engineering Qualifications

Higher International Certificate in Aerospace Engineering (EduQual Level 4) [120 credits]

This online aerospace engineering course has a total of 120 credits meaning that it is benchmarked to be equivalent to a full year of undergraduate study. Moreover, being a Level 4 aerospace engineering course means that it is benchmarked to the first year of a university degree course in aerospace engineering.

Most students are eligible to enrol directly on to this course because we teach you all the maths and science that you need to be successful with the rest of the course.

Students that already have a level 4 qualification in engineering, or those that have completed our Higher International Certificate in Aerospace Engineering (EduQual Level 4) qualification, are eligible to enrol on to:

Higher International Diploma in Aerospace Engineering (EduQual Level 5) [240 credits]

This online course develops your knowledge in aerospace engineering at a deeper and more specialist level.

Students working on a part time basis can typically complete these courses in a time frame of between 1 and 3 years. However, you are in control of your own learning, and it is in principle possible to finish the course much sooner than this.

Most students are eligible to enrol directly on to this course because we teach you all the maths and science that you need to be successful with the rest of the course.

Engineering Diplomas (EduQual Level 4/5) [40 credit]

We also offer a range of shorter online aerospace engineering courses leading to the accredited qualifications of:

Diploma in Aerospace Engineering

Diploma in Aerodynamics

Diploma in Aircraft Design

Diploma in Principles of Flight

Diploma in Aerospace Structures

Diploma in Aerodynamics, Propulsion and Space

These qualifications are ideal for learners that wish to study a specific topic of interest to them all who wish to complete the course in a shorter time frame then our full 120 credits courses above. These 40 credit qualifications can typically be completed in a time frame of between two and six months.

Fast Track Qualifications [20 credit]

For students who are looking to complete an online aerospace engineering course in the shortest time frame possible, we have the following accredited 20 credit qualification:

Certificate in Engineering (EduQual level 4/5)

Students can typically complete this fast-track engineering course online within one to three months.
