Minor in Aerospace


  • To provide a fundamental grounding in aerospace engineering
  • To prepare students to be competitive for positions in aerospace-oriented industries

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

  • aerodynamics
  • aerospace structures
  • flight mechanics
  • propulsion

To Apply

  • Meet with your advisor sophomore/junior year to plan minor courses into your schedule.
  • Complete the necessary course work (at least 18 credit hours).
  • Submit the application below in the semester before you are graduating.
  • It will then appear on your diploma.
