The Master of Engineering in Aerospace Systems Engineering concentration is professionally oriented and aimed at providing students a solid foundational knowledge of an interdisciplinary approach and relevant tools for enabling the realization of successful aerospace systems. The concentration focuses on aerospace systems analysis and the application of techniques for developing market and mission based aerospace systems from the initial identification of customer needs to the delivery of an integrated product. Students are exposed to requirement development, concepts of operations definition, functional decomposition, interface identification, trade studies, hazard and risk analysis, and other tools and processes used in evaluating system-of-systems solutions.
As part of the core curriculum and through elective coursework, students will be expected to gain a breadth of knowledge in aerospace system development outside of the undergraduate focus.
Relevant disciplines include:

  • Aerodynamics
  • Structural design
  • Material science
  • Electrical system design
  • Control system design
  • Space systems design
  • Aerospace vehicle design
  • Additional elements of the curriculum require students to integrate this knowledge in the design of complex aerospace systems. Students will focus their studies at the system level and prepare to become system, project, or program engineers. They will earn a professional master’s degree from a nationally ranked Aerospace Engineering program and place themselves at the forefront of the field of Aerospace Systems Engineering.
