Striving Towards Excellence in Education
Aerospace Engineering encompasses many areas of science and engineering. Aerospace engineers play a major role in the technological advancement of our society not only by designing aircraft and spacecraft but also by their leadership in fields as diverse as the biomedical and computer industries. Through its emphasis on mechanics, the AEM Department at the University of Minnesota ensures that students are well grounded in the fundamentals of engineering.
In our undergraduate program, students are trained in the engineering sciences and their application aerospace vehicles and systems including aircraft, spacecraft, and launch vehicles. However, the breadth and depth of the knowledge acquired by our students allows them pursue exciting careers in a variety of technological fields. The AEM Department has excellent laboratory and computer facilities and there are many opportunities for students to be involved in intern programs, exchange programs and undergraduate research projects. Our undergraduate program is highly ranked and has been continuously accredited since 1936.
Our graduate program prepares students for careers in research, advanced design and product development, and University teaching. We offer both Masters and Ph.D. degrees. Graduate students work closely with faculty and staff and most graduate students are supported by funded research programs. These research programs are very diverse and range from nano-techology to air traffic control. The graduate program is highly ranked and is characterized by high quality research using state of the art equipment, outstanding teaching programs and exciting cross-disciplinary research.
