The academics and expectations for Graduate Students are quite different from undergraduate study.
The Department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics is dedicated to educating graduate students in the diverse disciplines represented within its degree programs of aerospace engineering and mechanics.
In addition, your graduate study will teach you how to work independently and think critically about one’s own work and that of others. AEM faculty will help you reach these goals by offering challenging courses, organizing research seminars, encouraging informal discussions, and providing guidance during all stages of your research and coursework.
Masters of Science, Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics
The Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics program of the University of Minnesota offers three plan options. Plan A emphasizes research and preparation of a thesis, Plan B emphasizes a project, and Plan C is a coursework-only option recommended for working professionals.
Students will select from either Plan A, Plan B, or Plan C. If a student chooses Plan A, they then will write a thesis, which enables them to register for up to 10 credits for their research work. Plan B is accomplished mainly through coursework with a final three credit individual project. Plan C is coursework only.
