What will I study?

This online aerospace engineering course is tailored for those looking to specialise in aerospace engineering, either for a career, or for further university study.

The course is split into 6 units. Three of these units are core engineering and are common across each level 4 course.

There are then 2 specialist aerospace engineering units, plus one final optional unit of your choice (a list will be available during enrolment).

During your study you will cover the six units outlined below. You will start by studying the fundamental principles that under-pin all engineering:


Core Units

Engineering Design and Ethics – to help you to develop your mechanical engineering design skills.

Engineering Maths – so that you develop your mathematical skills that you will need to succeed with the rest of your course

Engineering Science – to give you a grounding in the science that underpins the engineering that you will study.


Specialist Units

Aerospace Structures – where you will study engineering principles for the design, development and analysis of aerospace structures and systems.

Flight Mechanics – This unit is concerned with the forces that act on aircraft and the prediction of their performance. This unit begins by introducing you to the nomenclature used for aircraft and then progresses to explore the physics of aircraft flight both from a quantitative and qualitative perspective.

+1 Optional Unit – You will have access to a range of optional units, so that you can study topics that interest you. These may even lie outside the field of aerospace engineering such as electrical, mechanical, or manufacturing engineering.

To be awarded a Higher International Certificate in Aerospace Engineering (EduQual Level 4), you must successfully complete 120 credits at level 4. Each of the 6 units are equally worth 20 credits each.

Is it fully accredited?

Yes. All our courses are fully accredited by a UK awarding body, EduQual.

EduQual is a regulated awarding body, approved by SQA-Accreditation, and a globally-recognised national qualifications regulator in the UK. They are a full member of the Federation of Awarding Bodies (FAB).

Are there any entry requirements?

Our level 4 Higher International Certificate courses are all designed to be open courses, meaning there are no pre-request entry requirements.

We have specifically designed our maths and science units so that they start with the very basics and develop your skills up to the required level needed to complete the course.

All our courses are delivered in English language, so you must be competent in learning technical information in English.

How long will it take to complete?

Typically, most learners take between 1 and 2 years when studying on a part time basis.

However, as these are distance learning engineering courses, you are in control of your own learning schedule and so you have the freedom to complete the course in your own timescale. Therefore our online engineering courses can be completed more quickly depending on your existing commitments and/or your existing knowledge.

How am I assessed?

All of our units are assessed by 100% written assignments. There are no exams to sit.

Tutor Support

Throughout the course, you will be given tutor support to help you with any questions or problems you may have on your course. All our tutors are experts in engineering, with many years teaching 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
