University Majors

California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo
Aerospace Engineering B.S. with a Concentration in Aeronautics

The Bachelor of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering prepares students for engineering work related to aerodynamics, flight testing, structures, propulsion, control systems, vehicle dynamics, stability and control, flight simulation, and design for both fixed and rotary wing aircraft, missiles, and spacecraft. The problems faced by the aerospace industry offer an unusual engineering challenge. Much of the analysis and testing must be accomplished at the very frontiers of knowledge. Nevertheless, products must be designed and manufactured; thus, an exceptionally wide range of engineering abilities is required within the industry and government. The Aerospace Engineering Department''s mission is to educate students using a laboratory-based, hands-on approach. This approach, coupled with a systems view of engineering, is encouraged through coursework and a group-based capstone design experience. This educational philosophy has yielded engineers capable of working in positions of technical responsibility and leadership in a modern multidisciplinary, systems-based environment. Aerospace Engineering graduates obtain employment in all phases of the aerospace industry such as general design, aerodynamics, stress analysis, flight testing, flight simulation, dynamics, stability and control, and propulsion systems. The BS degree program in Aerospace Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.
