BS in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering

Purdue University West Lafayette

Overview

The School of Aeronautics and Astronautics undergraduate program normally begins in the second year, after completion of the common First-Year Engineering Program.AAE is among the top aerospace engineering programs in the nation and was ranked No. 4 in the 2020 U.S. News and World Report rankings of aerospace undergraduate programs.

The sophomore year sets the foundation of basic engineering, including statics, dynamics, elementary structures, thermodynamics, and a broad introduction to the design of both aircraft and spacecraft. In the junior year, students learn about aerodynamics, propulsion, structures, dynamics, and control systems. Some courses in the junior year are available in both aeronautical and astronautical versions, and students choose the version of primary interest. In the senior year, students pursue, in consultation with their academic advisor, a specialization area. This is commonly chosen from the disciplines of:

  1. Aerodynamics
  2. Structures & Materials
  3. Propulsion
  4. Dynamics & Control
  5. Aerospace Systems Design
