This certificate recognizes student accomplishments at the graduate level in successfully completing a specialized program of study in the cross-disciplinary field of hypersonics. It is sponsored by the Ann and H. J. Smead Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences (AES) and the Paul M. Rady Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME) and involves courses from AES and ME.
The purpose of the certificate is to develop interdisciplinary skills in the field of hypersonics, which requires knowledge about fundamental areas such as gas dynamics, materials, controls, and how their inter-relationships determine hypersonic vehicle performance. The certificate is available to both current graduate students and non-degree students.
The standard requirements of this certificate program are the completion of twelve (12) hours of graduate-level coursework (typically four 3-credit courses) with grades of B or better in each course. There is one required course, ASEN 5519 Introduction to Hypersonics. Each student is free to choose the other three courses from the elective list below.
Students also pursuing other graduate certificates cannot use the same courses to count for both certificates.
