Program Educational Objectives

The Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering program exists in partial fulfillment of the University’s purpose “to provide a comprehensive education to prepare graduates for productive careers and responsible citizenship with special emphasis on the needs of aviation, aerospace engineering, and related fields.” The program’s focus is primarily on the engineering of mission-oriented vehicles for atmospheric and space flight.

Within a few years of graduation, the alumni of the BSAE program are expected to have successful engineering careers as productive members or leaders within teams or organizations or as independent innovators, to have applied creative thinking and practical problem-solving skills to the solution of problems or to the development of processes or products for the aerospace industry, or to be engaged in advanced studies.

Furthermore, these alumni are expected to be responsible and ethical members of society and the engineering profession, and to pursue personal development through continuing education and active participation in professional organizations.
