Aerospace Engineering Overview
Graduate programs in aerospace engineering are available to students holding BS engineering degrees from ABET-accredited undergraduate programs or their foreign equivalents, which lead to the degrees of Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy with a major in Aerospace Engineering. Areas of particular academic and research emphasis include: air and space vehicles, flight mechanics, propulsion, fluid mechanics, gas dynamics, energy conversion, and structures. Study in each of these areas usually involves a combination of analysis, computer modeling, and experimental approaches. The primary goals of the program are to provide the student with a strong background in the aerospace sciences in an environment representative of current research and development activity.
