Aerospace Engineering - BS

Coursework in aerodynamics, materials and structures, propulsion, and dynamics and control of aircraft and spacecraft provide a strong fundamental basis for advanced study and specialization, while senior technical electives offer a concentration of study in fields of special interest. Design is emphasized particularly in senior design electives and a senior-level two-semester design sequence involving specific goals, objectives, and constraints, which integrates analysis and design tools and requires students working in teams to design, and in some cases build, test, and deploy an aerospace system, such as an aircraft, rotorcraft, flight simulator, morphing air or space structure, space suit, space habitat, or a mission to Mars.  Application of modern engineering and computational tools is required and emphasized in most courses.
