Engineering a better world

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. 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.
