Why ODU for Aerospace Engineering?

Aerospace engineering involves the analysis and design of complex multidisciplinary systems associated with aircraft, spacecraft, rockets, unpiloted aerial and space robotic platforms, and many other emerging areas within aeronautics and astronautics.

In this program, our faculty strive to provide students with an environment of scientific inquiry and intellectual stimulation, opportunities for advanced education and creative research (essential for careers in teaching, research, or design), and pathways to contribute to the body of knowledge in aerospace engineering.

ODU's Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering has close ties with NASA Langley Research Center, Air Force Research Laboratory, Naval Research Laboratory, and other government agencies and local industry.

How to Apply

For admission as a regular graduate student, you must have an undergraduate degree from an accredited university in aerospace engineering, engineering mechanics, mechanical engineering, or a related field, such as civil structural engineering, physics or mathematics.

If you have a non-engineering degree, or an engineering degree other than aerospace, mechanical or engineering mechanics, your degree must have included the subject matter prerequisite for graduate study in aerospace engineering or engineering mechanics.

Want to get started now?

You may be able to take up to four courses (12 credit hours) as a non-degree graduate student, before you are accepted into a specific degree program. 

Please contact us to discuss this option with an expert advisor.
