Aerospace student working on machine

Mechanical Engineering, B.S. – Aerospace

Prepare for a career in the aerospace field by studying aerodynamics, propulsion, design, and more; working in cutting-edge labs and with innovative industry partners.

What You’ll Learn

The ABET-accredited Mechanical Engineering, B.S. program grounds you in the design and development of mechanical systems, structures, thermo-fluid systems, aerospace systems, advanced transportation, and energy systems through state-of-art technology and experiences.

The aerospace concentration provides a focus on aircraft and space vehicle design. Your courses emphasize material capabilities, production, and propulsion and are engineered to help you meet the changing priorities of the aerospace industry.

Your curriculum incorporates many design projects, ensuring you have work-ready competence upon graduation. You’ll gain additional learning experiences from our Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center, engineering clubs (ASME, SAE, NSBE), and undergraduate research opportunities alongside faculty members as part of our Undergraduate Research & Entrepreneurial Program (UREP)..

Will Udoh (B.S. ’13, M.S. ’15)


Will leveraged his passion for engineering and the confidence inspired by his New York Tech education to secure a position at Boeing in Huntington, California.

Melissa Mazo (B.S. ’21)


While making progress toward her B.S. in mechanical engineering, Mazo's works as a machinist at a company that makes flight safety jet engine parts for Fortune 500 aerospace companies reinforces what she learns during class.

Omari Adams (B.S. ’18)


While at New York Tech, Omari was the official representative of the New York City and Long Island chapters of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), and did a co-op at Sikorsky Aircraft in Connecticut for more than two years.


“ASME is a great way to break out of your comfort zone. I learned to weld, use the different machine shops, and work with motors. These skills helped me stand out and impressed the companies I interviewed with.”

Alexandra Kawecki, (B.S. ’18)

Commissioning Engineer, Syska Hennessey Group
