Aerospace Engineering (MS)
Research in aerospace engineering covers the fields of aeronautics and space technology. The AME Department also offers options in micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS), nuclear engineering, and biomedical engineering. Close relation with the Applied Mathematics Program is maintained.
Masters's students may choose a thesis, master’s report option, or non‑thesis/coursework only option:
The Department of Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering (AME) is excited that you have chosen to apply to our graduate program!
Admission to the AME graduate programs is granted based on a holistic evaluation of applicants’ credentials, including undergraduate and/or graduate GPA, GRE scores, personal statement, research experience, and letters of recommendation. A Bachelor of Science degree from an aerospace, mechanical, or nuclear engineering curriculum of a recognized institution of higher education is required of all applicants to the graduate program, with a cumulative grade point average equivalent to 3.25/4.00 or better in previous university‑level academic coursework, particularly in advanced mathematics and engineering courses. However, graduates from other engineering, mathematics, and physical sciences curricula may be admitted provisionally. Applicants’ GRE scores are expected to be in the top 25th percentile, particularly for the Quantitative portion of the GRE. International students must submit TOEFL (minimum overall score of 79) or IELTS scores (minimum composite score of 7, with no subject area falling below a 6) in order to be considered for admission.
Please note that ALL applicants who wish to be considered for departmental funding must apply and submit an online application for admission by January 1st for Fall admission and by June 1st for the Spring admission. Online applications for admission (not requiring funding) may be submitted by domestic applicants at any time before the start of the Fall or Spring semesters, and by international applicants by June 1st for Fall admission and by October 15th for Spring admission.
