The Aerospace Engineering program from University of Washington emphasizes the applied skills and experience needed in industry and differs from the Master of Science in Aeronautics & Astronautics (MSAA), which emphasizes preparation for independent, academic research. Aerospace Engineering classes meet in the evening, once per week.
The MAE is a terminal, coursework-only degree (does not lead to a PhD).
The following information applies only to students admitted to the Master of Aerospace Engineering program for Autumn 2013 and later. MAE students admitted before 2013 should refer to the MAE (Pre-2013) or MAE-CMS degree requirements.
Online courses are available for all students (including international students) in the MAE program.
Courses completed online rely on the exact same content (i.e., lectures, assignments, exams, and evaluation) as courses completed on campus. Students in online courses are provided access to view lectures via live webcast or to access them after they have been recorded. Homework and exams can be completed remotely. Students are held to the same deadlines standards of performance regardless of if they attend class online or in person. Techonology for online courses is facilitated by Online Learning Technical Support in the University's division of Professional & Continuing Education (PCE).
