The UA College of Engineering was established in 1837, making it one of the first five engineering schools in the nation. Since then it has grown to become a leader in the field boasting a large network of accomplished alumni and professors.
The online MSAEM is a flexible and convenient program that has been educating leaders in aerospace and mechanics for more than 20 years. Graduates of this highly competitive program are equipped to compete in the global job market in the aerospace engineering or mechanics field. Notable alumni include executives at Lockheed Martin Corporation and NASA. Many graduates of this program may be found in industries whose workers design or build aircraft, missiles, systems for national defense, or spacecraft. Aerospace engineers are also found in analysis and design, manufacturing, industries that perform research and development, and the federal government.
In this program you have two options: thesis or non-thesis. The online MSAEM can be earned by completing coursework only (non-thesis option) or by completing a combination of coursework and an approved thesis (thesis option). Most distance learning students elect to complete the non-thesis option.
Lectures are recorded during live campus classes and then made available to distance learning students. You will turn in all assignments online, and examinations are conducted in predetermined, proctored locations thereby requiring no campus visits while you are enrolled in the program.
Other than delivery format, the online MSAEM program is identical to the degree program offered to campus students.
