Aerospace Engineering


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.  

Program Educational Objectives

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:

  1. Develop successful careers as aerospace engineers; demonstrate professional engineering competence via promotions and/or positions of increasing responsibility.
  2. 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.
  3. Participate in research and development, and other creative and innovative efforts in science, engineering and technology, and/or pursue entrepreneurial endeavors.
  4. If not in an aerospace engineering career, successfully transition into an education, business, legal, medical or government career.
  5. Demonstrate a commitment to the community and profession through involvement with community and/or professional organizations.
