Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace engineers develop leading-edge technology and integrate it into high-performance aircraft and spacecraft systems. Graduates find employment in a wide range of manufacturing, service and software companies, governmental organizations and research laboratories. With solid grounding in aerodynamics, propulsion, structures, controls, and information technology, aerospace engineering graduates also have the broad, multi-disciplinary understanding needed to play an important role as architects and integrators of increasingly sophisticated vehicle systems.
