I love that Syracuse is an R1 research university. I’m involved in two research labs, which have been great opportunities for me.— Daniel Oluwalana ’21, Aerospace Engineering major
About the College of Engineering and Computer Science
Future engineers and computer scientists learn to create new knowledge and technologies through ten undergraduate majors. Students have access to nationally regarded research centers, state-of-the-art lab spaces, and challenging internships.
CoursesSample courses for aerospace engineering majors include:
- Aircraft Performance and Dynamics
- Design/Analysis of Aerospace Structure
- Helicopter Dynamics
- Introduction to Space Flight
- Aerospace engineering majors have access to hands-on learning via the Fidelity MOTUS 622i, one of the world’s most advanced flight simulators. Campus laboratories, an industrial assessment center, and subsonic and supersonic wind tunnels enhance learning and provide research opportunities.
- Get involved in active research projects in design and optimization designed to develop ways to help engineers identify compromises during aircraft product development.
- The College of Engineering and Computer Sciences has 20 co-curricular organizations, and a tradition of active participation in professional societies like the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).
- The five-year H. John Riley Dual Engineering/MBP Program allows you to earn a bachelor’s degree in aeronautical engineering and an MBA from Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Management.
- The 4+1 B.S./M.S. Program allows you to earn a master’s degree in mechanical and aerospace engineering one year after successful completion of the aerospace bachelor’s degree.
