Concentration in Aerospace Engineering
Undergraduate UMaine Mechanical Engineering Students can obtain a Concentration in Aerospace Engineering by completing three of the following aerospace courses with a grade of C or better (effective Fall 2020):
- MEE 348 Introduction to Flight
- MEE 445 Aeronautics
- MEE 446 Astronautics
- MEE 448 Fixed Wing Aircraft Design
- MEE 452 Aircraft and Automobile Structures
- MEE 462 Fluid Mechanics II
- MEE 463 Applied Computational Fluid Dynamics
- 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.
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.
