Students majoring in aerospace engineering must include in their program a sequence of fundamental courses. In addition, the students have the opportunity to satisfy their particular areas of interest by selecting a pattern of study indicated in the sequence below. This pattern includes typical aerospace engineering topics, such as aerospace vehicle design, structural analysis, aerodynamics, and propulsion. This program requires 123 units to include general education.
Preparation for the Major
These courses cannot be taken for credit/no credit (Cr/NC).
Engineering majors automatically satisfy the Natural Sciences and Quantitative Reasoning and Lifelong Learning and Self-Development foundations GE areas by completion of preparation for the major. Engineering majors automatically satisfy the Natural Sciences and Social and Behavioral Sciences explorations GE areas by completion of the major.
Graduation Writing Assessment Requirement
Passing the Writing Placement Assessment with a score of 10 or completing one of the approved upper division writing courses (W) with a grade of C (2.0) or better. See “Graduation Requirements” section for a complete listing of requirements.
The master plan must be reviewed each semester with the faculty adviser before registration. All course substitutions must be approved by the department chair.
The master plan provides an advising record for aerospace engineering majors and should be initiated by the student with their faculty adviser during the second semester of the freshman year. All students must have a master plan on file in the department prior to enrollment in
