What will I learn?

Aerospace engineering uses the basic sciences and mathematics to develop the foundation for the design, development, production, testing, and applied research associated with aerospace vehicles. These vehicles include aircraft, spacecraft, and missiles. Auxiliary and propulsion systems are also an integral part of this education. These include guidance, control, environmental, ramjet, rocket, turbo-jet, and piston engine systems. Emphasis in the senior year is directed toward these topics, and the program culminates in a major aerospace design project. The educational objectives of the aerospace engineering program are either to be an entrepreneur or to be employed in industry, government, academia or a nongovernmental organization, and to continue professional development by participating in structured professional activities and/or by obtaining professional registration or certification, post-graduate credits and/or graduate degrees.
