About

As the first aeronautics program at University of Michigan in the nation and one of the most highly-ranked undergraduate and graduate Aerospace Engineering departments in the US, we provide a very vibrant environment of intellectual challenge and excitement that is at the same time collegial and conducive to higher learning.

Overview

The 30 credit hours must include at least five courses in aerospace engineering at the 500 level or higher (excluding directed study courses and seminars) and two approved courses in mathematics from the list below. A single course cannot double count towards both the aerospace requirement and the mathematics requirement.

Also, up to six credit hours of directed study (AEROSP 590) and three credit hours of AEROSP 585. seminar series may be elected. Students are encouraged to take advantage of directed study and become involved in research as part of their MSE experience. The MSE program does not include an option for a thesis per se; however, through AEROSP 590, students can perform research work in close supervision of a faculty member and investigate a problem of common interest, resulting in a paper of publishable quality, if they so choose. Students should become acquainted with the research work being performed in the department and then contact faculty members with whom they find common research interest. A single course cannot double count towards both the aerospace requirement and the mathematics requirement.
