The Aerospace Engineering Bachelor of Science program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org/.

Undergraduate Program Objective

The Aerospace Engineering undergraduate program objective is that our graduates contribute to the aerospace profession, related fields and other disciplines through skilled professional practice in industry, government and/or graduate study. Within a few years after graduation we expect that:

  • Graduates are meaningfully employed or pursuing graduate study in aerospace or other high technology fields, with the majority retained in aerospace or closely related engineering
  • Graduates have a positive professional career path including promotions, leadership and/or continued education
  • Graduates recognize the value of their educational preparation for their current and future professional endeavors

Undergraduate Program Outcomes

Our program is designed to achieve our objective by establishing measurable learning outcomes, which graduates of the program must demonstrate:


(a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

(b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

(c) 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

(d) an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams

(e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

(f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

(g) an ability to communicate effectively

(h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context

(i) a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning

(j) a knowledge of contemporary issues

(k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
