Aerospace Engineering Labs & Facilities

Administrative and Faculty Space

The faculty and support staff for the Department of Aerospace Engineering are housed on the second floor of the Lehman Engineering and Technology Center. The two office suites on this hallway open at 8 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. during the regular school year. One suite houses the Graduate Program Coordinator, while the other is home to the Department Chair.
