Why Aeronautical Engineering at Lawrence Tech?
Aeronautical engineering is one of the fastest-growing engineering fields in the United States today and demands engineers with specialized skills. Lawrence Technological University's programs offer you a strong foundation with which to enter the industry, featuring a comprehensive curriculum focused on the fundamentals of aeronautical engineering necessary for aircraft design, analysis, and testing. Designed for mechanical engineering students or graduates, the aeronautical engineering program at Lawrence Tech provides you with a deeper understanding of this broad field - beyond what is covered in the mechanical engineering program. The minor is geared toward students pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, and the certificate is geared toward graduates of a mechanical engineering (or comparable) program. Both options require 18 credit hours - three core courses and three electives - all built around theory and practice. Throughout your studies, you will explore fluid dynamics, propulsion sources, aerodynamics, structural mechanics, control systems, noise and vibration, and engineering materials.
