Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace engineers design, develop, test and help manufacture commercial and military aircraft, missiles and space craft. They also may develop new technologies in commercial aviation, defense systems and space exploration. In this work, they tend to focus on one type of aerospace product such as commercial transports, helicopters, spacecraft or rockets.

Specialties within aerospace engineering include aerodynamics, propulsion, thermodynamics, structures, celestial mechanics, acoustics and guidance and control systems.

For more information on Aerospace Engineering contact the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (see link on the left).

To pursue Aeronautical Engineering you should work with an  Engineering Faculty Advisor (see below) as soon as possible to develop a plan of study leading to the Associate of Science Degree. 

It is especially critical to meet with a faculty advisor if you tested into a math class lower than MATH& 151 or an English class lower than ENGL& 101, or if you haven't had high school chemistry or physics.

If you haven't yet taken the Accuplacer test for placement contact the Assessment and Testing Center as soon as possible, but BEFORE contacting the faculty advisor.
