Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace engineering is primarily concerned with the design and analysis of aircraft and spacecraft. Subfields include aerodynamics, structures, controls and propulsion systems. Students at Florida Tech who choose to earn an aerospace engineering degree at Florida Tech are part of a prestigious program listed among the Fiske Guide's "Engineering/Top Technical Institutes" and Parade Magazine's College A-List in Engineering.

Whether you want to design aircraft, develop new methods of propulsion or be part of the team for space exploration, an aerospace engineering degree from Florida Tech is the one you want. Here, you'll develop a strong background in engineering and get hands-on experience in fields like aerodynamics and fluid mechanics.

Gain Practical Experience

Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, Florida Tech's aerospace engineering degree begins with courses such as Introduction to Aerospace Engineering and Calculus-Based Physics. Our Melbourne location gives you access to the Kennedy Space Center and other global leaders in space exploration and aerospace technology innovation.

As a senior working towards your aerospace engineering degree, you complete a senior design project in collaboration with a team of your peers. Together, you conceptualize, design, construct and present a machine, gadget or structure that fulfills a real-world need, and present the project to industry leaders and employers. New technical electives allow you to specialize in unique career-track subfields such as systems engineering, nuclear technology and energy engineering, making you a hot prospect in the eyes of future employers.

Build Professional Relationships

Beyond the classroom, aerospace engineering majors build leadership and professional experience through exciting internships and participation in academic organizations like Sigma Gamma Tau (aerospace engineering honor society), and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Student Government and over 100 other campus-wide student organizations.

Get Recruited Upon Graduation

Employers seek out graduates with an aerospace engineering degree from Florida Tech. Employers that have recruited our students for internships and careers include NASA, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, GE, Harris Corporation and Northrop Grumman.

Earn an Advanced Degree

After receiving their aerospace engineering degree, many of our students go on to graduate school at universities such as Florida Tech, Stanford, MIT, Johns Hopkins, Virginia Tech and Yale.
