AE Undergraduate Programs

Minor in Aerospace Engineering

The Minor in Aerospace Engineering addresses four classical areas relevant to the design of aerospace vehicles - aerodynamics, flight mechanics, propulsion, and structures. The students are exposed to contemporary analysis and simulation software and benefit from access to an array of experimental facilities that are on campus.  Courses are designed such that undergraduates in Mechanical Engineering typically meet all prerequisites; however students in Mechanical Engineering Technology or other areas may have to take additional preparatory courses.

For more information, contact the undergraduate program director, Dr. Colin P. Britcher.

Minor in Motorsports Engineering

The Minor in Motorsports Engineering addresses four key areas relevant to high-performance vehicles - aerodynamics, engines, vehicle dynamics, and overall vehicle performance. Students use a unique array of laboratory facilities including wind tunnels, engine dynamometers, and a Legends race car. Field trips to a local skid pad and race tracks for live vehicle testing are organized depending on the availability of these resources. Courses are designed such that the prerequisites are met by Mechanical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering Technology students.

For more information, contact the undergraduate program director, Dr. Colin P. Britcher.
