Purdue's School of Aeronautics and Astronautics is one of the top aerospace engineering programs in the nation and is currently tied for 6th in the U.S. News and World Report rankings of aerospace graduate programs. The online master's program focuses on aerospace engineering is specifically designed for working engineers and offers flexible plans of study with a format that allows you to study from where you are.
Courses offered in the following topic areas:
- Aerospace Systems
- Astrodynamics & Space Applications
- Dynamics and Control
- Structures & Materials
The 30-credit hour non-thesis curriculum is carefully designed and is delivered through streaming video and downloadable MPEG-4 files at times and locations convenient for you. You are able to decide to earn a Master of Science in Aeronautics and Astronautics (MSAAE) or an Interdisciplinary Master of Science in Engineering (MSE/MS) with a concentration in Aeronautics and Astronautics.
Online Plan of Study Details
The MSAA program offers a wide range of flexibility in aerospace course options. After you begin your studies at Purdue, an academic advisor will help you create a Plan of Study (POS) to best fit your educational needs and career goals. Every POS varies based on student interest, time, and course load. For planning purposes, an example POS for the Master of Science in Aeronautics and Astronautics (MSAAE) and the Interdisciplinary Master of Science in Engineering (MSE/MS) with a concentration in Aeronautics and Astronautics are available, as well as an extensive course menu that lists classes available over the next several years.
The flexible nature of our programs makes it possible for you to take time off from your studies if you need to. The majority of students choose to begin their studies by taking one course at a time to ensure they find a successful balance of work, life, and school.
