From designing and developing some of the world's most marvelous machines, such as military fighter jets, jumbo jets, personal aircraft and space telescopes, to aiding in the design of race cars and golf balls, aerospace engineering is a profession with out-of-this-world potential. As an aerospace engineer, you might work: on the ground researching and developing environmentally clean energy and transportation systems. in the air designing, constructing testing, or flying any type of aircraft; including jet fighters and giant bombers to commercial and private planes. beyond our atmosphere in the space industry or on diverse projects like rockets, satellites, and shuttles or as an astronaut. The aerospace engineering program is offered in the department of mechanical and aerospace engineering. In aerospace engineering, you will apply the laws of physics and mathematics to problems of aircraft flight and space vehicles in planetary atmospheres and adjoining regions of space. Maybe you will design space shuttles, rockets, or missiles. Possibly you might design military, transport, and general aviation aircraft, a V/TOL (vertical/ take-off and landing) aircraft, or a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle). You could design a spacecraft to travel to Mars or to a more distant planet. You’ll be able to tackle problems in the environmental pollution of air and water, or work on wind effects on buildings and structures, or wind energy harnessing. Designing all types of transportation systems, including high speed vehicles, urban rapid transit systems, and undersea craft might be some of the challenges you will undertake. Mission Statement We will provide a rigorous, productive, and relevant academic learning environment for students, faculty, and staff in the mechanical and aerospace engineering department by continually focusing on our core missions of teaching, research, and service. We will ensure that graduating students are well-educated and sufficiently prepared in the fundamentals of mechanical and aerospace engineering practice and science, such that they have the ability to solve open-ended problems in these disciplines and the capabilities required in order to become competent, productive, and well-rounded professionals. Missouri S&T Aerospace Engineering Program Objectives The overall educational objective of the aerospace engineering program is to prepare graduates for careers in the aerospace engineering profession and related disciplines, and/or receive an advanced graduate degree within three to five years from their graduation. Specifically, the expected professional accomplishments of the program graduates within five years from their graduation are that: They are employed by industry, a government agency, or in academia, or are in private practice. They have demonstrated competence and are successfully contributing to the aerospace science, technology, or engineering workforce. Aerospace Program Outcomes: Students graduating from the Missouri S&T aerospace engineering program should have: an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility an ability to communicate effectively
