Undergraduate Catalog

Coursework in aerodynamics, structures and materials, propulsion, and dynamics and control provide a strong fundamental basis for advanced study and specialization, while technical electives offer a concentration of study in fields of special interest. Design philosophy and practice are developed throughout the curriculum to relate analysis to aerospace engineering design. The design of aerospace system components is particularly emphasized in the junior- and senior-level courses. A senior-level two-semester design sequence, involving specific goals, objectives, and constraints, integrates analysis and design tools and requires students working in small teams to design, build, test and fly an aerospace system, such as an aircraft, rocket or spacecraft system. Application of modern engineering and computational tools is required and emphasized in all courses.
