Aerospace Systems Engineering

The Aerospace Engineering Department is pleased to offer a track in Aerospace Systems Engineering within the non-thesis master’s program in Aerospace Engineering (AE MS-NT). This track aims to provide students with a good foundation in the methods and tools involved in the definition and management of complex, multidisciplinary aerospace design projects. Since the ASE track is a special option within the AE MS-NT program, students must complete the standard requirements of the MS-NT program as well as the below requirements:

Note that, as it is the case for the non-thesis option of the MS program, no financial support is provided by the department for students enrolled in the ASE track.

ASE Track Enrollment Information:

Current graduate students must complete the ASE Track Registration Form and submit it to the Aerospace Engineering Graduate Office in order to enroll in the ASE track. Students applying for the Aerospace Engineering's MS Non-thesis graduate program should choose ‘systems engineering’ as their preferred interest area and include the ASE Track Registration Form with their application. Application information for the AE MS-NT program may be found here.

Students enrolled in the ASE track will receive a Master’s Degree in Aerospace Engineering with a non-transcriptable certificate in Aerospace Systems Engineering from the Aerospace Engineering Department.
