Aerospace Engineering

Grainger College of Engineering

The Online Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering degree is a non-thesis, non-research program. Online students receive the same lectures, class assignments, exams and projects as on-campus students. The program is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in the fundamentals of Aerospace Engineering by requiring at least one core course in each of the three branches of Aerospace Engineering (Fluid Mechanics, Solid Mechanics and Materials, Dynamics and Controls) as well as one course in mathematics. Specialization can then be made by taking additional courses in one or more of these, and other, areas: Aerodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Combustion/propulsion, Structural Mechanics, Solid Mechanics and Materials, Dynamical Systems, Aerospace Control, Orbital Mechanics, and Spacecraft. The non-thesis M.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering requires 32 credit hours of coursework (a thesis is not required). All students in the MS non-thesis option must complete at least one course from all three areas listed among the Aerospace Engineering Breadth Requirements.
