Students In Zero Gravity Aboard a KC-135

The University of Colorado Boulder is internationally recognized for its education leadership in aerospace engineering, Earth, and space sciences with world-class, committed faculty and exceptional, engaged students.

Whether your interests lie in joining a commercial business or a federal agency, starting your own company, or becoming an astronaut, CU-Boulder will help you achieve your aerospace career goals.

"Throughout my experience, I developed an engineering intuition, a strong grasp of the theoretical fundamentals, and the technical writing skills necessary to succeed in graduate school and in my career.” -Ashley Moore (Aero '06, AppMath '06)

By focusing education and research programs on both the science and engineering of aerospace, using experiential learning with intensive faculty and staff advising, the CU Boulder AES Department produces graduates who are broadly educated, interdisciplinary, agile, and have professional acumen. Hands-on learning and practical labs are critical components of the CU AES program.

"The experience gained from the lectures and labs is unparalleled. Specifically, the wind tunnel and F-16 jet labs gave me the perfect opportunity to obtain a summer job at a top-tier corporation where the job description and the content of the labs were almost indistinguishable." –Jorge Cervantes, sophomore

The aerospace engineering sciences program balances curriculum in both aeronautics and astronautics and also provides opportunities for students in remote sensing and the applied sciences.

“I actively recruit AES grads from CU, and not only have I always been impressed, so has my group, and my leadership.” -Geoffrey Lake (Aero BS/MS '09)
