Aerospace Engineering, B.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
    Duration
University rank #189 (QS) , TX,
The Aerospace Engineering offered by Texas A&M University is generally composed of three topical areas which are (1) core courses composed of humanities, visual and performing arts, international and cultural diversity, and social sciences, (2) basic science and mathematics, and (3) engineering science and design. 

About

The Aerospace Engineering courses offered by Texas A&M University are intended to broaden a student’s education and to provide training in oral and written communication skills. In addition, they ensure an awareness of our cultural heritage and contemporary human situation. The basic science and mathematics courses provide the necessary foundation for the engineering science courses. The latter start at the sophomore year with topics common to many fields of engineering and continue in the last two years with sequences in aerodynamics, structures and materials, propulsion, and dynamics and control. 

These provide a strong fundamental basis for advanced study and specialization, while technical electives offer a concentration of study in fields of special interest. Design philosophy and practice are developed throughout the curriculum so as to relate analysis to aerospace engineering design; and the design of aerospace system components is particularly emphasized in the junior- and senior-level courses. 

A senior-level two-semester design sequence, involving specific goals, objectives, and constraints, integrates analysis and design tools and requires students working in small teams to design, build, test, and even fly an aerospace system such as an aircraft, rocket, spacecraft or rotorcraft. Application of modern engineering and computational tools is required and emphasized in all courses.

Career Opportunities

Aerospace engineering graduates work in both industry and government in traditional aerospace companies, as well as new extensions in fields associated with aerospace engineering.
