Aerospace Engineering BS
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, spacecraft, space stations), as well as aerospace-related component development (design of structures, devices and instruments), and vehicle and propulsion system design.
The Aerospace Engineering BS program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
The curriculum is designed to meet several educational objectives. These program education objectives (PEOs) are broad statements that describe the expected accomplishments of graduates within a few years after graduation. Specific PEOs are:
- Career development: Graduates will hold a position in aerospace engineering or another field leveraging their training, or be engaged in advanced study.
- Professional service with integrity: Graduates will actively participate in professional and community groups while upholding the highest ethical standards.
- Addressing important problems: Graduates will use their aerospace engineering training to recognize and make a significant, positive impact on current and future societal challenges.
