DSY - Astronautical Engineering, M.S.;

Format: Campus

Program Description:

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 Air Force officer-engineer with a broad education in the scientific and engineering disciplines associated with astronautical engineering and to develop considerable depth of knowledge in selected areas of these disciplines. Thus the curriculum is designed to prepare the Air Force officer to make direct contributions as an engineer in the astronautical engineering field but also to prepare him or her to evaluate, monitor and administer astronautical research and development projects.
