The Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering program gives highly motivated students with a strong science and engineering background an opportunity to participate in a program of research and course work in the areas of aerospace structures, propulsion and aerodynamic systems, while earning their doctoral degree.
The Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering program targets domestic and international students, as well as working professionals with bachelor's or master's degrees in aerospace engineering (or closely related engineering disciplines), who have exemplary track records of academic achievement in their course work, and demonstrated keen interest and ability for engaging in research and independent inquiry.
The three areas of concentration in the Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering are Aerodynamics and Propulsion, Structures, and Dynamics and Control. The areas of research include, but are not limited to:
Students who have attended a university or universities outside of the US will be required to provide their official transcripts, and if deemed admissible by the PhD Aerospace Engineering committee, the university will then fund the WES ICAP evaluation. The admission will be provisional pending the results of the WES evaluation verifying degree completion and the appropriate GPA and coursework.
