Aerospace Engineering (Arizona State University)
In order to get a Bachelor of Science in Engineering at Arizona State University’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, students must complete at least 120 credit hours, which usually takes four years. The purpose of this program is to help participants gain the skills needed to design and develop aerospace vehicles and systems in a sustainable way. Students learn about the design of aircraft, helicopters, missiles and more.
All students in the program must take courses such as calculus, chemistry, composition and physics. Once these are complete, the classes become more focused on aerospace and include choices like aircraft propulsion, aerospace structures and materials, and space vehicle dynamics and control.
Many students who complete the program go on to work in the aerospace industry or for the government. Some of the positions include material and structural design, space mission design and analysis, wind tunnel and flight testing, as well as many other opportunities.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
