This focus area has been superceded by two new focus areas, Autonomous Systems, and Fluids, Structures and Materials. New students should enroll in the new focus areas. This page is being maintained here as a resource for existing MS and PhD students.


Engineering Systems (AESys) Focus Area is further divided into three Thrust Areas: Fluid Dynamics and Propulsion, Automatic Control, and Structures and Materials.

For the AESys Focus Area only, the general MS requirement to take a core course outside of the focus area is waived; however, Boulder Connect distance students in the structures thrust area must take an outside core course to fulfill the second thrust area requirement since no fluids or control courses are currently offered through Boulder Connect.
