The Department of Aerospace Engineering offers a non-thesis Master of Engineering (MENG) degree. Geared toward industry or to support a second, non-engineering degree, students in this degree program complete a minimum 30 credit hour degree plan. There is no defense of a final project required. All coursework will be in AERO or MEMA (Mechanics & Materials), but students may take up to three courses (9-10 credits maximum) from external departments if desired (e.g., other engineering disciplines, math, statistics, business, geoscience, etc.). Up to two credit hours of AERO 681 Seminar is allowed, but the same seminar topic cannot be repeated for credit. The department offers two AERO 681 Seminar topics each fall and spring semester (Communication and Professional Development). No AERO 691 Research hours are permitted in the MENG degree plan. The graduate director, or a faculty member appointed to the role, serves as the sole member of the student's committee. Students admitted to this program must have a bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering or an equivalent field. If the degree is not a closely related engineering field, leveling courses may be required.
