Mission: Aerospace Engineering

The mission of the Aerospace Engineering program is to provide the highest quality engineering education through cooperative efforts with aerospace industry; and to cultivate new ideas for design, analysis, and implementation of the principles and practices particular to aerospace engineering.

Program Educational Objectives

  1. Graduates will meet the expectations of employers of aerospace engineers.
  2. Graduates will undertake leadership roles in their communities and/or professions.
  3. Qualified graduates will pursue advanced study, if they so desire.

Student Outcomes

  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  • An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental and economic factors.
  • An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  • An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  • An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  • An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
  • An ability to use technique, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
