Undergraduate Program

    Mission Statement

    The mission of the Aerospace Engineering undergraduate program is to provide a basic understanding of aerospace/aeronautical engineering built on a foundation of physical sciences, mathematics, computing, and technology, and to impart the critical reasoning, technological expertise, and communication skills needed for engineers to contribute to society.

    Educational Objectives

    Graduates will succeed in pursuing their chosen career path. The primary indicator of success is that graduates will establish a reputation among their peers for engineering expertise and sound ethical judgment. Other indicators of success include:

    • Achieving professional advancement with increasing responsibility,
    • Engaging in technology-based entrepreneurial activities,
    • Engaging in advanced study in engineering graduate programs or related areas.

    Graduates will engage in a continuous process of life-long learning. Evidence of such engagement includes activities such as:

    • Staying abreast of emerging technologies,
    • Obtaining new skills or developing proficiencies with tools and programming/hardware description languages,
    •  Actively participating in professional communities.

    Learning Outcomes

    Students graduating from the program shall possess:

    1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics;
    2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors;
    3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences;
    4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts;
    5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives;
    6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions;
    7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
