The aeronautics concentration focuses on the design, building and testing of aircraft and related systems and includes courses in low and high speed aerodynamics, flight performance, propulsion systems, aircraft dynamics and control, wind tunnel testing and aircraft design. The concentration will prepare you for work in flight sciences, control, systems engineering, aerodynamics, structures and propulsion. Our students typically move on to careers with the major aircraft producers including Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman or with the launch vehicle and missile manufactures including Raytheon, Pratt & Whitney and launch integrators such as NASA and ULA.
