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 448 Fixed Wing Aircraft Design (Tech Elective)

MEE 452 Aircraft and Automobile Structures (Tech Elective)

MEE 462 Fluid Mechanics II (Tech Elective)

*Other aerospace-related courses offered at UMaine, as approved by the Department of Mechanical Engineering, are acceptable substitute for any of the core courses listed above.

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.
