Aerospace engineers design, test and operate complex aerospace and related systems. They often develop new technologies in specialized areas such as systems engineering, structural design, navigation guidance and control systems, production methods or many others. Depending on a student's chosen Concentration, an Aerospace Emphasis could lead to additional careers in maintenance, manufacturing systems, materials and mechanical systems.
The e+ degree requirements include completion of 128 semester hours of required and elective courses with a minimum grade point average of 2.25.
