Aerospace Science and Engineering
- Bachelor of Science
Do you want to help build an aircraft? Aerospace science and engineering is the branch of engineering that applies scientific knowledge to the design, manufacture and operation of aircraft. Our Bachelor of Science degree in aerospace science and engineering provides a broad background and fundamental education in mathematics, the physical sciences and the engineering sciences. These fundamentals, when complemented by the required technical courses, prepare students for employment in government or industry, while simultaneously establishing an excellent foundation for graduate studies.
As an aerospace science and engineering major, you will begin your study with an extensive series of foundation courses in science and mathematics. At the upper division level, you will take advanced courses in specific topics in aerospace science and engineering. These courses will include subjects such as aero-thermodynamics, propulsion systems, aircraft performance, flight testing and component and mechanism design.
