Mechanical Engineering, B.S. – Aerospace Concentration

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).

For those interested in even greater career preparation, the Accelerated M.S. Options program offers you the opportunity to earn both a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering in just five years.
