Aerospace engineers design, create and test prototypes to make sure that they function according to the design. The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering offers 4-year Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanical Engineering under their undergraduate program. 

Additionally, students can also opt for a dual-degree program. Since there is a great overlap between the Aerospace engineering and Mechanical engineering curriculum, and the first six semesters of the two-degree programs are identical, students can earn a dual Mechanical engineering/Aerospace Engineering B.S. degree with one semester of additional work.

The department also offers a combined Bachelor’s/Master's degree program.

It also offers the degrees of:

  • list items Master of Science (thesis or non-thesis)
  • list items Master of Engineering
  • list items Doctor of Philosophy in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.
  • Any master’s degree candidate may choose to pursue the Master of Science degree (M.S.), however only those holding ABET-accredited baccalaureate degrees in engineering may choose the Master of Engineering degree (M.E.). All other degree requirements remain the same.

    It may be noted, however, that for non - thesis students desirous of pursuing their Ph.D., the written qualifying exam needed to get into the Ph.D. program may substitute for the comprehensive exam. 

    The Department also offers a Ph.D. which is a research-intensive degree requiring independent mastery of a field of knowledge.
    The Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering has 25 Full Professors, 19 Associate Professors, and 6 Assistant Professors. 

    Areas of Expertise:

  • list items Mechanics of Materials & Biomechanics
  • list items Fluid Dynamics & Propulsion
