MINOR IN AEROSPACE ENGINEERING

If you’re a full-time junior student not majoring in Mechanical Engineering and have at least a 2.2 grade point average, you can apply for a minor in Aerospace Engineering.  The minor requires the 16 credits listed below with a minimum grade of “C” in each course.

  • AES 4105 Introduction to Flight Mechanics1 – 3
  • EGM 5615 Synthesis of Engineering Mechanics1 – 3
  • EMA 3702L Mechanics and Materials Science Lab – 1
  • EML 4419 Propulsion Systems – 3
  • EML 4711 Gas Dynamics – 3 and EGM 4350 Finite Elements in Mechanical Engineering – 3 or EML 4721 Introduction to Computational Thermo-Fluids – 3

All non-Mechanical Engineering students will have to meet the pre-requisite requirements for the courses above. If you’ve taken equivalent course(s) to those listed above, you’ll be exempted from taking the course(s) again. However, you will need to select courses from the following list to satisfy the minimum requirement of 16 credit hours for the minor:

  • EMA 5295 Principles of Composite Materials – 3
  • EML 4702 Fluid Dynamics – 3
  • EML 4220 Mechanical Vibrations – 3
  • EML 5125 Classical Dynamics – 3
  • EML 5509 Mechanical Design Optimization – 3
