Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics offers a diverse range of program opportunities for graduates. Our goal is to provide innovative and high quality programs that support the many and varied interests of our students.
Applicants for graduate work in aerospace engineering and mechanics must apply for admission to UA’s Graduate School.
Graduate students can specialize in the following aerospace or mechanics areas: aerodynamics, fluid mechanics, aerospace structures, solid mechanics, aircraft flight dynamics and controls, dynamics, and space systems and propulsion. Please refer to the Graduate Catalog for specific admission requirements.
An MSAEM can be earned by coursework only or by a combination of coursework and an approved thesis. Most distance learning students elect to complete the coursework only degree option. On-campus students supported by assistantships are expected to complete an approved thesis.
A research-based degree, students are required to propose, complete and defend an approved dissertation on a research topic that contributes to the field of aerospace engineering and/or engineering science and mechanics.
