Engineered to be Gold
Mechanical engineers are found in almost every industry. Students become familiar with design, synthesis, engineering computer applications and mechanical systems.
Aerospace engineers design, develop, test and help produce commercial and military aircraft, surface effect vehicles, missiles, and other related hardware or systems for inside and outside the atmosphere. They also design and develop hydrofoil ships, deep diving vessels for oceanographic research and high-speed rail-type machines. Boasting one of only two programs in the state, we provide unique experiences for our students. Included in their studies are aerodynamics, structures, propulsion, flight mechanics, stability and control, space propulsion and orbital mechanics.
Students in both programs can take advantage of our state-of-the-art laboratories in advanced thermal systems and heat transfer, thermo-electronics, biomechanics, experimental and computational fluid mechanics, aerodynamics, control systems, combustion, fatigue and fracture, advanced composite structures, material science, noise and vibration, motion and control, space flight dynamics and control, space plasmas, advanced vehicle design and simulation, micro and nanotechnology, batter testing, and alternative energy and fuel cells.
