Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Academics

MAE Academics


Undergraduate Programs
  • The undergraduate curriculum in mechanical engineering incorporates math, physics and chemistry, humanities/social sciences, business, engineering, electrical theory, measurement science, mechanical engineering core courses (computer aided drafting, dynamics and controls, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, materials science, and heat and mass transfer), and selected technical elective courses.

  • A minor in Aerospace Engineering requires at least 23 credit hours. All classes must be completed with a grade of C or better. The student will be responsible for any prerequisites to required courses. A maximum of 6 hours of transfer work may apply to the minor.

Graduate Programs
  • The Accelerated Master's Program (AMP) in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering department (MAE) allows high achieving students to pursue the Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in an accelerated manner.

  • The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering offers a program leading to the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSME). This research-oriented academic degree is appropriate either as a terminal degree or in preparation for doctoral studies in mechanical and aerospace engineering.

  • The Doctor of Philosophy is a degree that is conferred on a student who has demonstrated proficiency in some broad area of learning, and who has proven that he or she has the capability to evaluate work in the field critically.
