The Master of Engineering (MEng) in Aerospace Systems is our professional graduate program that consists of high-level, fast-paced coursework and significant engagement with industry-driven engineering projects. It prepares our graduates for a professional career path, or further graduate studies at UA or elsewhere.
In comparison to Master of Science, this professional degree emphases skills and practical analysis over the former’s theory and research. Students interested in Master of Engineering in Aerospace Systems will have an opportunity to complete individualized tracks focusing on aeronautical or space systems. In addition to courses in aerospace technology, the program provides essential training in engineering and business management, which is not a requirement of the Master of Science degree.
The College of Engineering was founded when the University of Arizona opened its doors in 1885. Mining was the bedrock of Arizona’s economy at that time, and educating mining engineers was a top priority – indeed, it still is.
As the state’s economy grew and diversified, the College of Engineering continued to play a pivotal role in providing the research and engineering expertise necessary for that growth.
In today’s competitive environment, graduates of the college are the entrepreneurs developing high-tech companies that are creating jobs and improving our quality of life.
An engineering education will provide the research to build new industries and the knowledge for those who run them.
