The School of Aerospace Systems at the University of Cincinnati offers MS and PhD degrees in Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics. Graduate students pursue research in the areas of Dynamics and Control, Fluid Mechanics, Propulsion Systems, and Solids and Structures. 


These are the four key areas that present challenges and opportunities to shape the future of aerospace engineering and to bring societal benefit at large.

Often referred to as the Birthplace of Aviation, the Southwest Ohio area has long played an important role in aerospace history and technology. The UC School of Aerospace Systems, which features the second-oldest Aerospace Engineering program in the country, has been at the forefront of aerospace technology since the early days of air and space travel.  The School of Aerospace Systems graduate programs have played pivotal roles in building this success by bringing together outstanding faculty, and the most talented students from around the world.

Career Prospects:

Now, more than ever, the School strives to deliver scientific discovery and technological innovation that will drive the future of aerospace engineering and more broadly will impact the related fields of energy, security, and health. This vision is supported by the substantial investments that the School has been able to attract based on its long-standing record of excellence. The School of Aerospace Systems is the first program at any university in Ohio to host two Ohio Eminent Scholars, one in the area of Experimental Fluid Mechanics and the other in the area of Finite Element Structural Analysis.  Recently, a $27 million contribution in endowment funds from the Ohio Department of Development has allowed the School to start the Center for Intelligent Propulsion and Life Management Systems, providing another example of the financial resources available to the School today.

The Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics program offered by the University of Cincinnati provides one of the best university-based research environments in the world with state-of-the-art laboratories and a diverse faculty base that has recently been expanded to bring top expertise in critical new research areas from leading institutions worldwide.
