 B. S. in Applied Aerospace Engineering

​​​​◄ ​Back to Current - B.S. Program​​

The Applied Aerospace Engineering degree is designed to cover all fundamental aspects of Aerospace Engineering. The curriculum contains general education courses in the areas of Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, Computer Science, Islamic and Arabic Studies, English and Physical Education similar to the Aerospace Engineering Science Option. In addition, the curriculum places extra emphasis on courses of practical importance such as AE 351 (Cooperative work). The industrial experience gained from the Cooperative Option is​ of immense value since it provides students with an important link between the theoretical and practical aspects of the Aerospace Engineering profession. The student mus​t spend 28 weeks in an industrial setting. During this period of training, the student writes pr​ogress reports rel​​evant to his work. After the prescribed time of training in industry, the student presents a seminar and submits a c​omprehensive technical report. The AE Department offers a variety of practically oriented elective courses, which include Aerospace System Maintenance, Aerospace Avionics, Astronautics, Flight Traffic Control and Safety.​

Program Educational Objectives:
The educational objectives ​of the Aerospace Engineering Program are three-fold:
a) Graduates will excel in their professional career to meet the expectations of employers of aerospace engineers.
b) Qualified graduates will be able to pursue advanced Aerospace Engineering degrees in excellent world universities if they so desire.
c) Graduates will assume leadership roles in their profession and in their communities.

Student outcomes:
It is expected that the graduates of the AE Program will exhibit the following outcomes at the time of graduation:
1) An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics.
2) An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental and economic factors.
3) An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
4) An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental and societal contexts.
5) An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
6) An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
7) An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
