Minor in Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace students present their poster for the AIAA competition with Professor El-Sadi


The Aerospace Engineering minor develops the engineering-analysis and design skills necessary for creating and understanding aerospace vehicles and their subsystems. The minor includes diverse topics relevant to applications in aerodynamics. Students in this minor will take at least three core aerospace courses.
