Program Description:

The Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering (MSAE) is designed to prepare students for careers as engineers in aerospace. Students may choose from three tracks: Accelerated BS to MSAE, Space Systems Design and Engineering, and Thermofluid Aerodynamic Systems Design and Engineering. The Accelerated BS to MS track in the Aerospace Engineering MSAE program allows highly qualified UCF undergraduate students in Aerospace Engineering to begin taking graduate-level courses that will count toward their master’s degree while completing their baccalaureate degree program. Space Systems Design and Engineering includes the fields of controls and dynamics, space environment, instrumentation and communications, structures and materials, thermal analysis, and design. Thermofluid Aerodynamic Systems Design and Engineering includes the fields of controls and dynamics, aerodynamics, propulsion, thermal analysis, and design.
