MSE in Aerospace Engineering
University of Michigan - Ann Arbor


An M.S.E. course in Aerospace Engineering offered by the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor is an extension of the Aerospace Engineering topics covered in the B.S.E. degree. The core method of teaching this course is its one of a kind approach of combining the fundamental research topics with the applied ones. A degree based on course-work, it consists of ample opportunities for research if a student is so inclined. Another point worthy of note is that the Course does not restrict itself to traditional topics associated with Aerospace Engineering but extends to typical and upcoming areas such as environmental sustainability, large scale computing, homeland defence, etc. A student must typically opt for elective courses along with the fundamentals as part of the requirements of this course. While submitting a thesis is not mandatory, The University of Michigan offers its students the opportunity to collaborate with a member of the faculty to develop papers of publishable quality in areas of common interest. The credit hours required to be invested by a student of this course is 30.
