Minor in Aerospace Engineering

Purpose

  • To provide a foundation in aerospace engineering
  • To help MU students compete for positions in the aerospace industry

Students will take courses from the 4 fundamental areas of aerospace engineering:

  • Aerodynamics
  • Aerospace structures
  • Flight mechanics
  • Propulsion

Process

  • Meet with your advisor during your sophomore/junior year to plan minor courses into your schedule.
  • Complete the necessary course work (at least 18 credit hours).
  • Submit the application form (list of completed/planned aerospace courses) in the semester before you graduate.
  • When completed, the Aerospace Minor will appear on your diploma.
