Aerospace engineering

The Aerospace Engineering major is a five year program aimed at providing the future graduates with the ability to fulfill the engineering tasks associated with air and space travel. The emphasis is on multidisciplinary education. The student is exposed to a range of topics covering basic math, physics and mechanics, engineering structures, fluid mechanics and aerodynamics, control engineering and robotics and propulsion. Additional courses on sensors, electronics, software and system engineering provide the student with a well-rounded approach to engineering. The graduate would thus have the reach and flexibility to start a career in the air transport or space industries or associated research centers. The program strongly emphasizes hands-on design experience and innovation. This is highlighted in the two-semester graduation project where students demonstrate their mastery of the abilities acquired throughout the program.
