Some courses for the Aerospace Engineering MS degree can be taken through the Distance Education program. These courses are taught live to students in a classroom on the main campus and are available via Distance Education technology to off-campus students. Students enrolled through the Distance Education program are encouraged to participate during the class broadcast, while classes are recorded and archived. Review a recorded lecture.
Students must be admitted to the MS Aerospace degree program, and have an approved program plan, before they can be registered for any of the Distance Education courses. Most Distance Education students choose the Plan C coursework only option. Course selection varies by semester.
Visit the Graduate Degree Programs page for more information about the MS Aerospace degree.
Information about graduate admissions, including how to apply, can be found on the Admissions page.
