What will I learn?

The four-year undergraduate program leading to the BS degree in aerospace engineering prepares students for careers in aerospace and related technologies. This includes the traditional aeronautics and astronautics applications (e.g., subsonic and supersonic aircraft, satellites, space shuttle, space station), as well as aerospace-related component development (design of structures, devices, and instruments) and vehicle and propulsion system design.

Learning Outcomes

The Aerospace Engineering BS Program at UB is accredited by ABET, which requires a formal Outcomes Assessment and Continuous Improvement process to ensure educational excellence. The Program Educational Objectives for the ME program are:

  • Graduates will hold a position in aerospace engineering or other professional career or will be engaged in advanced study.
  • Graduates will serve their profession and their community by participation in professional and community groups.
  • Graduates will use the unique problem-solving skills from their engineering training to make a significant, informed impact on current and future societal challenges

In addition, the curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop the following knowledge, skills, and behaviors by the time of graduation:

  • an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  • an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  • an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  • an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  • an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  • an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  • an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Career Outlook: Aerospace engineers are expected to have 10 percent growth in employment over the decade.

Entry requirements

For students from United States

Admission to UB’s freshman class is selective and is based in part on the quality of your secondary school academic record and the number of spaces available in the class; You should feel confident applying to UB if you have an above-average academic record and have taken challenging courses in high school to help prepare you to be successful at university. UB uses a 4.0 grading scale and we expect students applying here to have the equivalent of a 3.0 on that scale. That is the same as a grade of B or 83 on a 100-point scale.

For international students

Our applicants have completed rigorous coursework in high school. Most students have taken high school courses in basic academic knowledge areas. The following courses are not required for admission, but are suggested as adequate preparation for university-level coursework: Four years of English (with a substantial writing component); Four years of social studies; Three years of college-preparatory science; Three years of a second language; At least three years of college-preparatory mathematics. Some students who haven’t completed such a program still qualify for admission; however, it might be necessary to take additional courses to strengthen your knowledge in one or more of those areas after you enter the university.

English Language Requirements:

The minimum score of TOEFL IBT is 70, the minimum score TOEFL PBT is 523, the minimum score of IELTS is 6.0, the minimum score of PTE is 50, the minimum score of ACT (English and Reading) is 18, the minimum score of SAT I Critical Reading (Old Version) is 450 and the minimum score of SAT I ERWS (New Version) is 500.
