The aeronautical industry requires high calibre engineers at every stage of the product life-cycle, from conceptual design through to in-service support.
Studying in the Aeronautical and Aircraft Engineering department at Perth College UHI will prepare you to meet the ever-growing need for engineers in this innovative and progressive sector. Aeronautical Engineering is a strategically important industry for Scotland with companies such as BAE Systems and Rolls Royce employing people in high skill, high-paying jobs.
