Overview

Key Features

While earning your BS in the Aerospace Engineering program of Worcester Polytechnic Institute, you’ll gain a comprehensive approach to the field by studying engineering, mathematics, basic sciences, humanities, and social sciences under the close guidance of our dedicated and enthusiastic faculty. Our collaborative approach means you’ll be working with engineers and scientists from other disciplines and with students from high school through the PhD level who are as interested in aerospace engineering as you are. When you leave here, you won't just know what to do, you'll have years of hands-on experience most students won't get until graduate school.

If you’re serious about an Aerospace Engineering career, you can apply for the BS/MS option during your junior year which allows you to earn a bachelor’s and master’s degree in five years.
