UK Accredited Online Engineering College

Flexible online engineering courses and qualifications

Diploma in Aerospace Structures

The Diploma in Aerospace Structures offered by iLearn Engineering® is a specialist online engineering course that provides in-depth knowledge of aircraft structures.

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

Diploma in Aerospace Structures (EduQual Level 4)

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

Unit 1: Engineering Maths (recommended*) – this unit covers the fundamentals of mathematics required for successful completion of the specialised unit. You will cover algebra, trigonometry, statistics and basic calculus. If you already hold a mathematics qualification you may be eligible to choose an alternate unit.

Unit 2: Aerospace Structures (core) –  in this unit you will start by describing the features and functions of aerospace structures and the loads they are subjected to. You will then learn how to quantify the effects of static and dynamic loads in typical aerospace structures by examining the stress and loads typically encountered. Finally, you will begin to understand some of the typical machine components and systems used within aircraft structures such as gears and mechanisms as well as gyroscopes and the effects of friction in machinery.

* The recommended unit can be replaced by a different unit of your choice depending on your personal preference, or previous learning experience.

“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
