A unique blend of aerospace and ocean engineering systems
AOE undergraduate students embark upon a rigorous course of study and research, which grounds them in the fundamentals of aerospace and ocean engineering while launching them into aeronautics, astronautics, and hydronautics careers.
Graduate studies in aerospace and ocean engineering allow students to immerse themselves in an area of research, hone their design and analysis skills, explore applications, and make an impact on the field and on society.
Our faculty and students are investigating, designing, and manufacturing technologies to move boldly and safely through spaces both well traveled and unexplored. They are rising to—and meeting—today's aerospace and ocean engineering challenges.
