  • Aerospace Engineering

    Aerospace engineers solve exciting problems of design, construction and operation of aircraft and spacecraft to meet the ever-increasing requirement for improved performance at lower unit cost. The undergraduate curriculum provides a broad education with a strong foundation in mathematics, science and basic engineering sciences. Advanced courses in aeronautics and astronautics complete the degree program and prepares students to work in aerospace industries or to pursue graduate study.

    This program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

    Before Graduating Students Must

    • Pass an assessment by two or more faculty and/or industry practitioners of performance on a major design experience.
    • Pass assessment in two courses of individual assignments targeted to each learning outcome. Assessment will be provided by the instructor according to department standards.
    • Complete an exit interview in your final semester.
    • Complete requirements for the baccalaureate degree, as determined by faculty.

    Students in the Major will Learn to

    Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)
