CHANGE THE WORLD Designing a human powered aircraft Aeronautics and Astronautics students have designed and constructed their own human-powered aircraft for their Group Design Project. Southampton University Human Powered Aircraft (SUHPA) was designed in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first human powered aircraft SUMPAC which was designed by University of Southampton students.

CHANGE THE WORLD The world’s first printed aircraft Southampton engineers have designed and flown the world’s first ‘printed’ aircraft, which could revolutionise the economics of aircraft design. The team manufactured the entire structure of the unmanned craft using a laser sintering machine, which fabricates plastic or metal objects by building them up layer by layer. It took just one week to design, manufacture and assemble the aircraft – something that would normally take months. The technique involves no cutting or grinding of metal, allowing the creation of shapes and structures that would usually involve costly traditional methods. Radical changes to the scale and shape of a design can be made at no extra expense because no tooling is required for manufacture.

FACILITIES Our students have access to 3D printers during their undergraduate study

RAPID PROTOTYPING Changes to prototypes can be made quickly and printed within hours for testing

12

LOWER COST 3D printing costs less in terms of material and person hours than traditional methods

Course structure

Group work

E-learning

The first two years of our courses provide a solid, focussed, foundation for the design and operation of air vehicles and spacecraft. You will follow a core set of modules before specialising in your chosen area in the third and fourth years.

Practical experience is essential in today’s employment market: our group projects provide the perfect opportunity for you to enhance your practical and team working skills.

Most staff use Blackboard as an electronic medium to disseminate printed notes, exercises and other teaching material. In some cases tests are carried out via Blackboard. Besides being part of the assessment, such tests are designed to provide you with rapid feedback regarding your understanding of the taught material.

In Year 3, you will have the opportunity to specialise by selecting a theme (MEng only). You will also undertake an individual project, as well as a group aircraft (or spacecraft) design exercise. In Year 4, MEng students take modules relevant to their chosen theme and participate in a Group Design Project (GDP).

How will you learn? We offer a dynamic mix of lectures and seminars led by experts at the forefront of their fields, practical lab sessions in our world-class facilities, industry site visits and project work. Our lectures include guest speakers from industry and other institutions from around the world. In addition to lectures, in Years 1 and 2 you will have tutorials and laboratory classes with teaching staff, which are held in small groups, and individual supervision of your projects in Years 3 and 4. We will also help you to develop key skills, including written and oral presentation skills, using a wide variety of learning methods.

All of our undergraduates complete an individual research or design project in their third year as well as a group aircraft or spacecraft design exercise. In the past students have designed an A320-type replacement airliner, a microlight aircraft and a moon orbiter. Year 4 GDPs are often linked to current research activities or topics that have practical relevance to industry e.g unmanned air vehicles, spacecraft instrumentation, electric propulsion devices and racing car components.

Field trips We take all our second year students on an exciting one-week practical course in Flight Testing at Southampton International Airport where experiments are performed on board a Jetstream flying laboratory aircraft. We have connections with key players across the aerospace and automotive industries and organise a number of visits to industry partners and research establishments. In the past we have taken students to Agusta Westland, Airbus UK, Rolls-Royce and QinetiQ.

Student support service for learning Each student is assigned a personal tutor, whose role is to monitor and supervise your overall progress on your degree and to provide pastoral care, support and advice, where appropriate . For any non-academic problems student services are able to help and support you during your time at the University. Our Employability Coordinator can point you in the right direction to help you obtain the relevant skills and experience you need to further your career. They have connections with local, national and international employers as well as the University careers advisory service (Careers Destinations).

TERMS & CONDITIONS The University’s Charter, Statutes, Regulations and Policies are set out in the University Calendar and can be accessed online at www.calendar.soton.ac.uk Terms of use This brochure does not constitute an offer or invitation by the University of Southampton to study at Southampton. This brochure provides an overview of the University and life at Southampton, along with information about all the undergraduate courses available at the time of publication. It is provided for information purposes only. Relevant weblinks are shown throughout the brochure. Please also consult the course information online for further details or for any changes that have appeared since first publication of the brochure. The information contained in the brochure, welcome guides or on our websites. is subject to change and may be updated by the University from time to time to reflect intellectual advances in the subject, changing requirements of professional bodies and changes in academic staff members’ interests and expertise. Changes may also occur as a result of monitoring and review by the University, external agencies or regulators.

1. Change or discontinuance of courses The University of Southampton will use all reasonable efforts to deliver advertised courses and other services and facilities in accordance with the descriptions set out in the brochure, student handbooks, welcome guides and website. It will provide students with the tuition and learning support and other services and facilities so described with reasonable care and skill. We undertake a continuous review of our courses, services and facilities to ensure quality enhancement. We are also largely funded through public and charitable means and are required to manage these funds in an efficient and cost-effective way for the benefit of the whole of the University community. We therefore, reserve the right where necessary: – to alter the timetable, location, number of classes, content or method of delivery of courses of study and/ or examination processes, provided such alterations are reasonable; – to make reasonable variations to the content and syllabus of course of study (including in relation to placements); – to suspend or discontinue courses (for example, because a key member of staff is unwell or leaves the University); – to make changes to our Statutes, Ordinances, Regulations, policies and procedures which we reasonably consider necessary (for example, in the light of changes in the law or the requirements of the University’s regulators). Such changes if significant will normally come into force at the beginning of the following academic year or, if fundamental to the course, will normally come into force with effect from the next cohort of students; – to close courses or to combine or merge them with others (for example, because too few students apply to join the course for it to be viable).

If the University closes, discontinues or combines a course or otherwise changes a course significantly (the “Change”), the University will inform applicants (or students where relevant) affected by the Change at the earliest possible opportunity. a If the Change comes into force before the University has made an offer of a place or before an applicant has accepted an offer of a place, an applicant will be entitled to withdraw his or her application, without any liability to the University, by informing the University in writing within a reasonable time of being notified of the Change. b. If the Change comes into force after an offer has been accepted but prior to the student enrolling, the student may either: (i) withdraw from the University and be given an appropriate refund of tuition fees and deposits, or (ii) transfer to another available course (if any) as may be offered by the University for which the student is qualified. If in these circumstances the student wishes to withdraw from the University and to apply for a course at a different university, the University shall use its reasonable endeavours to assist the student. c. If the Change comes into force after a student has enrolled, the University will use reasonable endeavours to teach the course out but cannot guarantee to do so. If the University cannot teach out a courses, it will use its reasonable endeavours to facilitate the transfer of a student to an equivalent course for which the student is qualified and which has places available within the University or at a different university.

2. Changes to services or facilities The University will make available to students such learning support and other services and facilities as it considers appropriate, but may vary what it provides from time to time (for example, the University may consider it desirable to change the way it provides library or IT support).

3. Financial or other losses The University will not be held liable for any direct or indirect financial or other losses or damage arising from such closures, discontinuations, changes to or mergers of any course, service or facility. Upon acceptance by an applicant of an offer of a place at the University, the relationship between the applicant and the University becomes contractual. When the contract is formed between the student and the University it will last for the relevant academic year only unless the student withdraws from the course or the course is terminated. Please note: the right of a student to withdraw from a course under the provisions set out in paragraph 1(b) above following a Change, are in addition to any statutory rights of cancellation that may exist under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.

In entering into that contract, the terms of the contract will not be enforceable by any person not a party to that contract under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.

Force majeure The University will not be held liable for any loss, damage or expense resulting from any delay, variation or failure in the provision of courses, services or facilities arising from circumstances beyond the University’s reasonable control, including (but not limited to) war or threat of war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, interruption in power supplies or other services for any reason, fire, boycott and telecommunications failure. In the event that such circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the University arise, it will use all reasonable endeavours to minimise disruption as far as it is practical to do so provided that such endeavours do not undermine the University’s Quality Assurance requirements.

Admissions Policy and Complaints The University will assess applications in line with its then current Admissions Policy. The Admissions Policy, current at the time of publication, is published online and is available at www.southampton.ac.uk The Admissions Policy is reviewed at least annually. Applicants may raise complaints related to admissions under the University’s Regulations Governing Complaints from Applicants, which can be found in the Calendar at www.calendar.soton.ac.uk Further information about, or clarification of, these procedures is available from Admissions Team, Student and Academic Administration, University of Southampton, Southampton SO17 1BJ, email: admissions@soton.ac.uk.
