As home of the second-oldest aerospace engineering program in the country, UC has well-established ties to the aerospace industry. Our nationally ranked co-op program gives aerospace engineering students real-world experience with aerospace manufacturers and research firms across the country and around the world.

Our aerospace engineering professors (one of whom was Neil Armstrong) have industry experience that they share with their students. Through co-operative education, our students have opportunities to extend classroom studies by working with industry on real-world problems.

Our graduates are employed by aircraft, spacecraft and aerospace engine manufacturers; government agencies like NASA and the Air Force; and consulting and research firms that serve the aerospace industry, like General Electric Aviation.
