Our graduates go on to pursue careers as engineers, scientists, inventors, astronauts, administrators, and leaders in the field of aerospace engineering.
As a graduate student in the Aerospace Engineering program, you become part of a longstanding tradition of excellence and success. Whether your focus is local or global, your graduate education generates opportunities for truly making a difference across every spectrum of society.
The first aeronautical courses were offered In 1926, under the direction of the Mechanical Engineering department. In 1939, an expanded graduate program in aeronautical engineering was initiated. By 1942 the Department of Aeronautical Engineering was formed, with the first doctoral degree awarded in 1948. Since then, more than 900 masters and 350 doctorate degrees in aeronautical/aerospace engineering have been awarded.
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
