Aerospace Engineering
Description of the Major
Aerospace engineers solve exciting problems of design, construction and operation of aircraft and spacecraft to meet the ever-increasing requirement for improved performance at lower unit cost. The undergraduate curriculum provides a broad education with a strong foundation in mathematics, science and basic engineering sciences. Advanced courses in aeronautics and astronautics complete the degree program and your preparation to work in the aerospace and related industries or to pursue graduate study.

This is a nationally accredited ABET program.
Additional information is available from your major's website.
Before Graduating You Must
  • Pass an assessment by two or more faculty and/or industry practitioners of performance on a major design experience.
  • Pass assessment in two courses of individual assignments targeted to each learning outcome. Assessment will be provided by the instructor of the course according to department standards.
  • Complete an exit interview your final semester.
  • Satisfy the Florida statutory requirements for CLAST.
  • Complete requirements for the baccalaureate degree, as determined by faculty.
Skills You Will Acquire in the Major (SLOs)
  1. Apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering principles to aerospace engineering problems.
