Aerospace engineering covers the design, construction and science of aircraft and spacecraft. Designed for undergraduate mechanical engineering majors, the aerospace concentration offers students a foundational mechanical engineering degree and specialized training in the aerospace discipline. The four-course, 16-credit concentration is available to students in the mechanical engineering bachelor's degree program. The concentration is noted on students' official transcripts and will help prepare students for careers in aircraft and engine design, avionics, aircraft and spacecraft materials, and safety systems. Coursework will focus on aerospace fundamentals, including fluid mechanics, aerodynamics, controls, materials and propulsion. The required courses will provide an intrduction to the processing steps required in aerospace development, with a focus on the design, scheduling, budgeting and building of a specified project. Coursework also includes a focus on vector spaces, linear transformations and the fundamentals of probability and statistics.
