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.
