About the Program

Rapid advances in aerospace systems require the successful aerospace engineer to develop new concepts and bring them into reality as reliable, competitive, and environmentally acceptable products. Successful completion of a balanced study of basic science and engineering topics, further balanced by humanities, will ensure that graduates are well prepared to tackle tomorrow’s problems.

The curriculum covers the four broad areas of aerodynamics, propulsion, flight mechanics, and structures, supplemented by appropriate laboratory experiences. The culmination of the undergraduate curriculum is a vehicle design project. Students may broaden their education by choosing elective courses in a secondary field of interest or by taking a second bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. The graduate curriculum provides advanced training to prepare graduates for careers in aerospace system research and development, conceptual flight vehicle design, or higher education.
