Aerospace engineering

The Aerospace Engineering program of study emphasizes aerodynamics, structures, propulsion, and flight mechanics with instructional material leading to a year-long capstone design experience in the senior year. Faculty work in areas such as aerodynamics, hydrodynamics, structural mechanics, material science, dynamics and control, multidisciplinary design optimization, and energy systems.
