Flexible online engineering courses and qualifications

Diploma in Aerodynamics

The iLearn Engineering® Diploma in Aerodynamics is a 40 credit course leading to the qualification of:

Diploma in Aerodynamics (EduQual Level 5)

The course is delivered as an online engineering course, consisting of two 20 credit units. The first unit is designed to deliver some fundamental learning required to progress onto the second, specific core unit.

Unit 1: Fluid Mechanics (core)

In this unit you will begin to understand the fundamental principles of fluids by evaluating the laws governing static flow problems and then progresses to discover the implications of viscosity in real flow. You will then examine the aerodynamic forces in fluid flow before finally reviewing tje operating principles of hydraulic machines.

Unit 2: Aerodynamics, Propulsion and Space (core)

In this specialised aerodynamics unit, you will examine the principles of incompressible flow which are then are applied to aerofoils, wings and whole aircraft. A review of drag and its minimisation is then studied. Propulsion is considered by examining the gas turbine engine and its principles of operation. Finally, high speed flows including transonic, supersonic and space flight are considered.

Course Information

The Diploma in Aerodynamics from iLearn Engineering® is an accredited online course that provides in-depth knowledge of the fundamental principles of aerodynamics. This online engineering course covers a wide range of topics, including the basic concepts of fluid mechanics, aerodynamic forces and moments, flow over different types of aerofoils and wings and different flow regimes including subsonic, transonic, supersonic and hypersonic flow as well as spaceflight.

Designed for individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in the aerospace industry, this online course provides a solid foundation for further study in areas such as aircraft design, propulsion, and aerospace engineering in general. It is also an excellent option for professionals who are looking to upskill or retrain in the field of aerodynamics.

Affordable Payment Plans

iLearn Engineering® offers flexible payment plans for the Diploma in Aerodynamics, making it easier for students to pursue their educational and career goals. The payment plans are designed to be affordable and flexible, allowing students to spread the cost of the program over several months or years, depending on their needs and budget.

Study Anywhere, Any Time with No Exams and No Schedules

The online delivery of the course also offers flexible study modes, allowing students to learn at their own pace and in their own time. This makes it an attractive option for individuals who are working full-time or have other commitments that may limit their availability for attending traditional classroom-based courses.

Wide Range of Aerospace Industry Careers Opportunities

Graduates of the Diploma in Aerodynamics will have a wide range of career opportunities in the aerospace industry. They can pursue careers in aircraft design and testing, as well as in the design and development of propulsion systems. They may also find opportunities in research organizations, government agencies, and academic institutions, where their knowledge of aerodynamics can be applied to a range of projects.

“I successfully graduated my Higher International Certificate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The studies was good, tutor provide much support. I recommend iLearn Engineering for distance learning Engineering studies.”

Fuad, Higher International Certificate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

“So far, in two weeks study I have understood more content with these guys than in one year at part time university. Really good content especially in maths and makes learning a nice smooth progressive path rather than being rushed and pressured. Top notch service 👍”  

Simon, Higher International Certificate in Mechanical Engineering

“This program is providing me with the opportunity to finally finish my engineering degree at the most reasonable cost I’ve seen in the market to date…I highly recommend iLearn Engineering for anyone who wants to get into the field or pickup where they left off.”

Ian, Higher International Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering
