About this course
The MSAE Program is designed to prepare students for professional careers in industry or advanced study in Ph.D. programs. Students develop skills in research, design, development, testing, and systems integration in air and space transportation systems. In addition to advanced aerospace engineering courses, electives are available in science, business, and other engineering fields.
Class schedules are designed for the convenience of employed engineers who wish to pursue graduate work on a part-time basis.
