The Aerospace Engineering program prepares students for careers in this dynamic industry. The program includes studies in aerodynamics, stress analysis and structural design, flight mechanics, stability and control, and aircraft performance, together with courses in the fields of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering.
In first and second year, you’ll advance your understanding of foundational engineering science in courses like mathematics, basic sciences, and computer programming, as well as aerospace design and flight mechanics. In third year, you’ll choose to study in one of three streams: aircraft, spacecraft, or avionics. In fourth year, you’ll work on a student team to design and analyze your own aircraft or spacecraft, and present your final project to industry representatives. There is a strong emphasis on design and much of the analytical work is reinforced by computer and hardware laboratories. Studies in the humanities and social sciences complement the engineering courses and provide a rounded perspective.
