Admission Requirements

  • A bachelor's degree, GPA of 3.0 or better, in Aerospace Engineering or a related engineering field from an accredited institution.
  • Courses in mathematics (Calculus I, II, III, & Differential Equations), and Thermodynamics are required to be considered for admission.
  • Completed applications are reviewed and considered for admission on a case-by-case basis.

Graduate Program Prerequisites

The Aerospace Engineering Graduate Program encourages applicants with other related engineering backgrounds to apply to our program. The Graduate Admissions Committee may recommend that an incoming student take selected undergraduate courses before the core courses.

The Graduate School requires students to maintain a 3.0 GPA in all courses for credit since enrollment. Prerequisite courses are listed to assure that students have the necessary academic background before enrolling in a given course. The ENAE 283 course ( Introduction to Aerospace Systems) is required for students without an aerospace engineering background.

ENAE283 Introduction to Aerospace Systems

  • Prerequisite: ENES 102, PHYS 161 and MATH 141
  • Co-requisite: PHYS 260 and PHYS 261

Introduction to airplanes and space vehicles as aerospace systems. Fundamentals that describe these systems. Elements of aerodynamics, airfoils, and wings. Airplane performance, stability, and control. Aircraft and rocket propulsion. Fundamentals of orbital motion. Aspects of vehicle conceptual design.

ENAE311 Aerodynamics I

  • Prerequisite: ENAE202, ENAE283, ENES220, MATH241, MATH246, MATH461, PHYS270, and PHYS271
  • Co-requisite: ENME232 or ENME320

Fundamentals of aerodynamics. Elements of compressible flow. Normal and oblique shock waves. Flows through nozzles, diffusers and wind tunnels. Elements of the method of characteristics and finite difference solutions for compressible flows. Aspects of hypersonic flow.

ENAE414 Aerodynamics II

  • Prerequisite: ENAE 311

Aerodynamics of inviscid incompressible flows. Aerodynamic forces and moments. Fluid statics/buoyancy force. Vorticity, circulation, the stream function, and the velocity potential. Bernoulli's and Laplace's equations. Flows in low-speed wind tunnels and airspeed measurement. Potential flows involving sources and sinks, doublets, and vortices. Development of the theory of airfoils and wings.
