Modern aerospace systems become increasingly intricate as technology advances. Successful, safe, and sustainable aerospace engineering requires coordination of many interrelated processes and systems. By encompassing the areas of aeronautics and astronautics, the aerospace engineering program at UC prepares students to analyze, design and implement aerospace systems for the next generation of explorers.
The Master of Engineering (MEng) program provides a graduate degree that focuses on the practice of engineering in order to better serve working professionals. Rather than culminate in a research experience and a thesis, the Master of Engineering curriculum provides skills and expertise that enhance the individual’s ability to contribute to the technical workforce. The difference between the traditional Master of Science degree and the MEng degree is not on the rigor of the coursework or a lack of competencies, but rather on the focus of the curriculum.
