The Aerospace Engineering (ASE) graduate program at The University of Texas at Austin is a top-1 0 nationally ranked program where students perform world-class research under the supervision of distinguished faculty. Students have the opportunity to complete advanced study and research leading to the Master of Science degree and the Doctor of Philosophy degree. Our graduates go on to pursue careers as engineers, scientists, inventors, astronauts, administrators, and leaders in the field of aerospace engineering.

Thesis/Report Option will complete either 24 hours of coursework plus 6 hours of supervised research thesis or 27 hours of coursework plus 3 hours of supervised research report. (ASE 398R). In the case of the Master's thesis, the supervised research must be taken in two consecutive semesters. For both the Thesis and the Report, the final research course must be taken in the semester of graduation. Coursework will complete 30 hours of coursework. Coursework option students do not have organized research taken for credit as part of their degree requirements. Up to 6 hours of upperdivision undergraduate coursework may be included in the required coursework. Regardless of the degree option, 6 hours must be completed in supporting coursework outside the Area of Study.
