Aerospace Engineering Major (Bachelor of Science)
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 complemented by humanities, will ensure that graduates are well prepared to tackle tomorrow's challenges.
The 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 supplemented by appropriate laboratory experiences. The culmination of the 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 program in aerospace engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET. Enrollment and graduation data for the ABET-accredited Bachelor of Science program in Aerospace Engineering can be found below.
