Aerospace engineering is a magnificently vast field of study spanning the sky through outer space. That distinction requires a pioneering spirit and the most comprehensive field of study in order to overcome the extreme conditions of the environment in space.
This field is a wide, undeveloped domain. As the navigators of this domain, the faculty believes in the challenging mindset, where we educate students to achieve technical capability and a higher moral awareness.
Science and technology continue to advance at an increasingly rapid rate. In such a time, the fundamentals remain important. The curriculum of the Department places as its cornerstone the study of mechanical fields, specifically: Engineering Mechanics, Strength of Materials, Thermodynamics, and Fluid Mechanics. On top of these basic subjects are Spacecraft Dynamics, Analysis of Flight Vehicle Structures, Viscous Fluid Mechanics, Reactive Fluid Dynamics, and other derivative subjects. In addition, Design and Drawing of Aircraft Structure, Spacecraft Design and Graduation Thesis are offered as integrated subjects.
It is vital to clearly understand theory, and how that theory and fact are related. Since 1963, Aerospace Engineering has researched as its subject matter Manpowered aircraft, where the practical research results on design, construction, and flight experiments have benefited aeronautical engineering education. In turn, this education impacted artificial satellite development, resulting in the ultra-compact artificial satellite, SEEDS, being successfully launched on April 4, 2008.
