BS in Mechanical Engineering – Aerospace Engineering Concentration

Objective

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering offers program leading to BS degree in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) with an Aerospace Engineering Concentration. The program offers students a mechanical engineering degree foundation and specialized training in the aerospace discipline. Coursework focuses on aerospace fundamentals, including fluid mechanics, aerodynamics, controls, materials, propulsion, vector spaces, linear transformations and the fundamentals of probability and statistics. The required courses will provide an introduction to the processing steps required in aerospace development, with a focus on the design, scheduling, budgeting and building of a specified project. The BSME – Aerospace Engineering Concentration program is accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET).

The objectives of the BSME – Aerospace Engineering Concentration program is to prepare graduates who, within the first four to six years after graduation are, either:

  • Working as a professional or as an entrepreneur in an area closely related to mechanical engineering, aerospace, or
  • Exhibit lifelong learning by pursuing or having completed a graduate or professional degree and/or demonstrated professional development

 

Curriculum

Students enrolled in BSME – Aerospace Engineering Concentration program are required to complete 129 course credits.
