Graduate study in aerospace engineering provides qualified students with opportunities to further their education with advanced courses in their area(s) of interest, as well as to excercise and sharpen skills developed as part of their undergraduate training. It provides for the student at the master's level, perhaps for the first time, the challenge of involvement in a meaningful research project under the guidance and supervision of a senior faculty member.
Graduate students may specialize in aerodynamics, astrodynamics, boundary layer theory, control theory, flight dynamics, orbital mechanics, propulsion, structures, or structural dynamics. Comprehensive programs are maintained in all of these areas. Graduate classes are small, thus permitting appropriate attention to student's particular educational needs. Interdisciplinary studies in other engineering-related fields such as physics, mathematics, and computer science provide the graduate student with a well rounded education. Planning of each program is flexible to allow for varied interests and activities.
Admission to study in one of the graduate degree programs offered by the Department of Aerospace Engineering to through the Graduate School of Auburn University. All applications must be submitted to the Graduate School. Applications of prospective graduate who meet the student wishes to enter one of our programs of study are forwarded to our Graduate Program Officer for review by members our graduate faculty.
