The Undergrad Program

The undergraduate program at the Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering is one of the largest and most rigorous in the nation. Our students develop a sophisticated grasp of aerospace engineering, its foundational concepts, and its applications in science, industry, and government. In addition to the BSAE degree, the School offers a minor in aerospace engineering for students majoring in other disciplines.

The Master's Program

More than 40 percent of AE undergrads earn a master's degree within 10 years of finishing their BSAE. Industry is increasingly demanding this. The Daniel Guggenheim School offers three options for earning an MSAE degree: the traditional MSAE program, the BS/MS Honors Program, and the Distance Learning Program. Many grad students enhance their experience with co-ops, internships, and study abroad experiences as well.

The Doctoral Program

The Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering offers a doctor of philosophy degree with a major in aerospace engineering. The program offers a combination of unrivaled academic rigor and challenging research. All candidates must pass the AE qualifying exams, before embarking on their own uniquely defined research - a problem or set of problems that will be explored in their dissertation.
