At Michigan, students in Aerospace Engineering begin with a set of courses that provide an exceptional background in all the fundamental aspects of the field. These span the entire spectrum of aerospace technologies, from gas dynamics and propulsion to structural mechanics, flight dynamics, and controls.
You can tailor the program to your own interests by choosing electives from advanced aerospace courses or from courses in a wide range of other technical areas. These include applications that reach from aerodynamics and helicopters to air vehicle systems, from rocket and spacecraft propulsion to orbital dynamics and satellite control, from materials and advanced composites to computer and information systems for aerospace vehicles. Students integrate these diverse subjects in senior-level design courses offered in aircraft design and space system design.
Students with special interests can choose a combined degree program that offers them two bachelor's degrees, with the second often being in a field such as mechanical engineering. There's even a combined program you can choose that leads to both a bachelor's and a master's degree in just five years.
