AESOP with University of Bordeaux


Engineering fields, as a whole, have experienced explosive growth within the past decade, especially that of Aeronautical, Mechanical, Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering as well as Computer Science. With the global competition and consumer demand for the next great innovation becoming ever-more imperative, the need for collaborative engineering is immensely prevalent in today’s market. The realm of air traffic management and safety—both civilian and defense—is similar and that is why the University of Cincinnati College of Engineering and Applied Science (UC CEAS) and the University of Bordeaux (UBx) have partnered to cultivate the Aero-System Operations (AESOP) Collaborative Degree Program.
