  • Overview


The University of Kansas Department of Aerospace Engineering graduates have distinguished themselves in their careers. KUAE is very interested in staying connected with our alumni. Throughout the years, we’ve built a strong community of aerospace engineers living around the country and the world. Some of the most powerful and influential leaders in industry have come from the Department. Among our outstanding alumni are an astronaut and several CEOs of major corporations. Please e-mail KU Aerospace Engineering at aerohawk@ku.edu with alumni news to keep us updated. 

Our alumni are charitable when it comes to donating time, talent and capital. Many come back to campus to meet with students and counsel them. Some serve on the Advisory Board, strategically guiding the Department. Still more provide financial support through KU Endowment that makes the Department’s programs and experiences possible.
