For program curriculum information see:
The undergraduate Aerospace Engineering program will educate and train students in the contemporary aerospace engineering disciplines of analysis, experimentation, and design of aerospace systems through classroom instruction and professional practice embodied in the cooperative educational experience. http://www.ase.uc.edu
Program Educational Objectives:
The Program Educational Objectives were rewritten in response to the last ABET evaluation (see Background Information Section F.) so that they are consistent with ABET criterion definition as well as the Program Mission Statement. The assessment of these objectives was also changed as discussed in the Continuous Improvement Section so that they are done at an appropriate point after graduation.
The Educational Objectives of the Aerospace Engineering Program are:
Within a few years of earning the baccalaureate degree in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Cincinnati our graduates are expected to achieve one or more of the following objectives:
- Develop successful careers as aerospace engineers; demonstrate professional engineering competence via promotions and/or positions of increasing responsibility.
- Successfully complete or pursue graduate education in engineering and related fields, participate in professional development and/or industrial training courses and/or obtain engineering certification.
- Participate in research and development, and other creative and innovative efforts in science, engineering and technology, and/or pursue entrepreneurial endeavors.
- If not in an aerospace engineering career, successfully transition into an education, business, legal, medical or government career.
- Demonstrate a commitment to the community and profession through involvement with community and/or professional organizations.
- An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to problems in the aerospace disciplines.
- An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
- An ability to design an aerospace system, component, or process to meet desired needs.
- An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams.
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems in the aerospace disciplines.
- An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
- An ability to communicate effectively in written and oral presentation.
- The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions ion a global and societal context.
- A recognition of the need for an ability to engage in life-long learning.
- A knowledge of contemporary issues through participation in a general education program.
- An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
