Fly High with an Undergraduate Concentration in Aerospace Engineering!

Undergraduate UMaine Mechanical Engineering Students can obtain a Concentration in Aerospace Engineering by completing the following sequence of three courses:

MEE 445-Aeronautics (Junior/Senior Level Tech Elective)

MEE 446-Astronautics (Junior/Senior Level Tech Elective)

and either

MEE 547-Flight Dynamics and Control of Aircraft


MEE 548-Spacecraft Orbit and Attitude Dynamics and Control

Aerospace Engineering is an ever-evolving and highly challenging career choice. Aerospace engineers are on the leading-edge of that evolution, involved in research, design and development of a wide range of fascinating vehicles, some traveling at astounding speeds through both air and space. These systems can include satellites, launch vehicles, fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, marine vessels, projectiles, airdrop vehicles and an ever widening range of unmanned autonomous systems (UAS).

The skills developed in these courses can be applied in a number of different industries including those associated with aerospace science missions, defense missions and commercial applications as well as in the automobile and marine industries.
