Program Description:

Working professionals can now earn a thesis or non-thesis master’s degree in aerospace engineering through Missouri S&T’s distance education. The aerospace engineering program offers comprehensive graduate education in a wide variety of areas. Because of the inherent interdisciplinary nature of aerospace engineering, professionals working in non-aerospace engineering sectors may also benefit from the coursework offered as part of the distance master’s of aerospace engineering degree program. The thesis degree requires a minimum of 30 credit hours of coursework (at least 21 credit hours of coursework and at least 6 credit hours of research). The non-thesis degree requires a minimum of 30 credit hours of coursework, up to 6 hours of which can be from out-of-department courses.


Since 1913, Missouri University of Science and Technology has been accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
