MS in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics

The MSAEM degree can be earned through coursework only (30 credit hours) or by a combination of coursework (24 credit hours) and approved thesis research (6 credit hours). Most students in the distance program elect to complete the coursework degree option, whereas on-campus students supported on assistantships are expected to complete an approved thesis on a research topic. However, students in the distance program and self-supporting on-campus students may select either option based on consultation with their graduate advisor.
