This recently launched program, among the first of its kind, is designed to train engineers to become future project managers and program managers for the aerospace industry with either integrator or supplier companies. The rigorous curriculum offers a unique blend of courses in mathematics and science, business and systems, and mechanical and aerospace engineering.
Other distinctive features of the program include an internship following the student’s first year of study and four mandatory co-op periods, during which systems topics will be covered. In addition, students will be encouraged to participate on the Society of Automotive Engineers Aero Design team, beginning in their first year.
The curriculum of this new program is designed to include specific non-engineering and systems courses, as well as an intense co-op experience, to meet the goal of developing future senior technical leaders for our aerospace industries.
Experience aerospace systems engineering firsthand through the research facilities in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, which include:
Gain important practical professional experience through the cooperative education program in your chosen engineering field. Through co-op, you’ll alternate semesters of work and school following your sophomore year. As an added benefit, you’ll earn a competitive salary.
Interact with other engineering students and professionals in the field through organizations such as:

The aerospace systems engineering degree provides students with a rigorous engineering background, and training in cost accounting, leadership and functioning in teams. The material presented gives students a breadth of knowledge that will serve them well in engineering or management positions.
The College of Engineering's Cooperative Education Program enables you to integrate classroom instruction with practical and valuable on-the-job work experience. If you choose to co-op, you will complete your first five semesters of study and then begin alternating a semester of paid employment in your major field of interest with a semester of classroom study, until your senior level.
