Graduate Certificate in Aerospace Engineering
Students who pursue a Graduate Certificate in Aerospace Engineering will achieve the following educational objectives:
- The ability to apply the fundamentals of both incompressible and compressible flows, wing and airfoil theory, and fluid kinematics and dynamics.
- How to analyze aircraft engines and spacecraft propulsion systems.
- The mechanics and design issues associated with aerospace structures; including the analysis of thin skins with stiffeners for external surfaces, bulkheads and frames for shape support, and fasteners for holding components together.
- How to analyze the flight mechanics of aircraft and spacecraft, including flight performance, flight dynamics and stability, orbital maneuvers, and flight control.
The certificate will be both a stand-alone and for degree seeking students. It is comprised of 12 hours of graduate study at the 7000 level, requiring 4 courses to be taken, one from each core area within our aerospace curriculum.
