By encompassing the areas of aeronautics and astronautics, the aerospace engineering program at UC prepares you to analyze, design and implement aerospace systems to become the next generation of explorers. You'll build a foundation in the contemporary aerospace engineering principles required to innovate in a variety of fields and learn to design and develop flight vehicles and aerospace systems like avionics, propulsion, remote sensing and autonomous navigation.
Course work includes the analysis and design of aircraft, spacecraft, missiles, rockets and satellites. Students engage in hands-on training in the fields of fluid mechanics, propulsion, structures, controls and electronics. Computer skills are increasingly vital in the aerospace industry, so students also take courses in computer-aided design, structural analysis and simulation studies.
