UA's Department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics undertakes an integral role in educating aerospace engineering and engineering science and mechanics students, conducting innovative and exciting scientific research, and improving the economic development of the state of Alabama.
The department has a long and rich history dating to 1912 with the formation of the Department of Engineering Mechanics and to the late 1920s with the start of the aeronautics program. The two departments merged in 1996 to form the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics. Today, with innovative programs and research, UA aerospace engineering continues to be an important training ground for future engineers across the state, region and nation.
The Department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics has graduated students who have achieved successful careers in industry, education, the military and government. These students have been able to utilize the technical education they received at the Capstone in careers in a wide range of fields ranging from engineering to computer science to business and medical fields.
