Anything that Flies
Advances in aerospace systems require aerospace engineers to develop new concepts and bring them into reality as reliable, competitive, and environmentally acceptable products. Our curriculum covers the broad areas of aerodynamics and fluid mechanics, propulsion and combustion, flight mechanics and controls, structural mechanics and material behavior, structural dynamics, and system design and optimization.

What Do Aerospace Engineers Do?
Aerospace Engineers use skills in aerodynamics, propulsion, structures and materials, guidance and control, and flight mechanics to design and direct the manufacture and testing of aircraft, space flight vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles, and automobiles.
UTA is one of only four aerospace engineering programs in Texas, and the only one in North Texas. Students can earn a fast-track Master's degree in five years, making them even more attractive to future employers, or they may choose to supplement their degree with a certificate in unmanned vehicle systems. There are many opportunities for research, and UTA boasts the nation's only university-based arc-heated, hypersonic wind tunnel, along with several other wind tunnels, in the Aerodynamics Research Center.
You may choose to pursue a graduate degree, and you might take a job in academia, teaching the next generation of students. If you enter the workforce, you'll join our alumni at top companies like:
- American Airlines
- Bell Helicopter
- Collins Aerospace
- Lockheed Martin
- PCC Aerostructures
- Weatherford Aero
- and many more!
The program in aerospace engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (https://www.abet.org), under the General Criteria and the Aerospace Engineering Program Criteria.
Requirements for Licensure or Certification
All discipline specific programs in the College of Engineering meet educational requirements for professional licensure or certification in all U.S. states, territories, and the District of Columbia.
