AFIT is primarily a graduate school for selected U.S. and foreign military officers, and for equivalent-rank Department of Defense (DOD) civilian personnel. For all AFIT programs, admission and selection of students are handled through appropriate USAF directives. There is no charge for tuition, since our students are granted a "scholarship" to attend AFIT through their respective services.
This program provides the student with a broad background in aeronautical engineering and in- depth specialization in one or more of the areas of aerodynamics, propulsion, structures and flight mechanics. The program leads to the degree of Master of Science in Aeronautical Engineering or Master of Science.
