Undergraduate Admissions

Welcome to the Department of Aerospace Engineering!

You're about to embark on the journey of a lifetime. During your years as an undergraduate student in AE, you'll take courses that cover the fundamentals of flight and space. But you'll also have opportunities to go further with courses you elect to take as well as through experiential learning in research, internships, and study abroad programs.  There are also plenty of  hands-on opportunities to design, create, and fly aircraft and spacecraft, through coursework and student group activities.
