Divided in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering is dedicated to the study, design and development of aircrafts, devices that operate inside Erath’s atmosphere, and space crafts, that operate outside the atmosphere. Studying Aerospace Engineering requires very good knowledge of physics, especially aerodynamics but also fluid mechanics, propulsion, statics and dynamics, mathematics, control engineering, and many others and is generally accepted that it demands way-above-average mental capability. It is also a very interesting and engaging field of study, reserved only the passionate few.
Marine Engineering deals with the study, design and construction of various marine vessels. Marine Engineers are engaged in designing the propulsion systems, auxiliary power machinery and operation equipment. As Marine Engineering student you have the opportunity to specialise in certain types of Marine equipment, such as pumps, engines, gears, etc. A graduate of Marine Engineering possess good knowledge of mechanics, hydraulics, material science and mathematics among others.
Usually for both Aerospace and Marine Engineering an excellent physical condition might be an extra requirement in order to be assigned a job in these fields.
Graduate studies in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) lead to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in engineering sciences, with a specialization in one of the following areas: aerospace engineering, applied mechanics, applied ocean sciences, chemical engineering, computational science, engineering physics and mechanical engineering.
The Master of Science (SM) degree is a one- to two-year graduate program with a beginning research or design experience represented by the SM thesis. This degree prepares the graduate for an advanced position in the aerospace field, and provides a solid foundation for future doctoral study. The department has a tradition of both strong scholarship and of contributing to the solution of "industrial-strength" problems. Its reach within aerospace extends to high levels of policy and practice.
Opportunities for graduate study are available in the following areas: low-speed aerodynamics, airplane and helicopter aerodynamics; V/STOL aircraft, turbulence, astrodynamics, turbomachinery, air breathing propulsion, aeroacoustics, gas dynamics, stability and control of aerospace vehicles, aerospace structures, structural dynamics, aeroelasticity, rotorcraft engineering, computational fluid dynamics, experimental fluid dynamics, space propulsion, space vehicle dynamics, and high-performance computing.
The Aerospace Engineering (ASE) graduate program at The University of Texas at Austin is a top-10 nationally ranked program where students perform world-class research under the supervision of distinguished faculty.
Master’s programme in Robotics and Computer Engineering trains highly qualified roboticists, computer and space engineers. The programme provides broad knowledge in the field of robotics, computer engineering or space technology. Graduates can work in enterprises or research and development centres connected to their field of study.
Graduate programs in Aerospace Science and Engineering are offered by the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies (UTIAS), leading to research-intensive Master of Applied Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees and a professionally oriented Master of Engineering degree. The Master of Engineering program is oriented towards professional engineering practice and consists primarily of coursework.
The only program of its kind in the United States. Our program is a 6 semester, part-time online option for industry professionals. The LL.M. program is open to individuals with J. D. degrees from ABA-accredited law schools or with degrees in law from foreign universities.
UF EDGE offers online master's degrees from seven of our gator engineering departments with multiple degree program tracks (emphasized areas of study) available in these seven majors.
The M.S. programs are research oriented, are intended to provide the intensive technical preparation necessary for subsequent pursuit of a Ph.D. The degree may be terminal or obtained in the course of earning the Ph.D.
Seas and oceans play an important role in our day-to-day lives, and over 65% of the world’s population lives or works in coastal areas. Vital for our economy and health – as well as for climate, food, and biodiversity – seas and oceans have immense societal significance. However, the oceans are changing rapidly as human-induced pollution and CO2 emissions lead to global warming and ocean acidification. The impact on organisms, ocean chemistry, and currents on short to long timescales is uncertain, affecting both business and policymaking.
Our mission is to educate the nation's future leaders in the science and art of mechanical and aerospace engineering. Further, we seek to expand the frontiers of engineering science and to encourage technological innovation while fostering academic excellence and scholarly learning in a collegial environment.
The Aerospace Engineering Program at Ohio State offers MS degrees in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering (AAE). The AAE program, which was originally founded in 1948, has gained national visibility in the aerospace engineering community.
