Aero. Eng. FundamentalsCollege of Engineering
This course will give a mechanical engineering major some skill sets for aeronautical engineering. With an 80-90% overlap in engineering topics between an aeronautical engineering program and a mechanical engineering program, the course will use many of the principles of mechanical engineering (fluid mechanics, thermodymanics, controls, deformable solids, and dynamics) applied to aeronautics applications such as aerodynamics, wings stability and control of aircraft, propulsion systems, and flight dynamics. Design principles used for flight applications and the operation environment of aircraft will also be covered.
