The career opportunities for a graduate are working as a
- manufacturing engineer
- design engineer
- modeling engineer
As a graduate, you will also be prepared for graduate school work, should you choose that route.
The Aeronautical Engineering program consists of 87 credit hours out of 120 credit hours in a bachelor's degree. Those 87 credit hours in aeronautical engineering include classes in applied physics, applied mathematics, engineering science and mechanical engineering. Take courses such as:
- Aircraft Structural Analysis
- Design of Propulsion Systems
- Aircraft Performance and Flight Mechanics
- Optimal Engineering
- Aircraft Design I and II
- Design of Aircraft Structures
Research experience for undergraduates (paid summer internships) includes that funded by the National Science Foundation or other government agency or foundation.
Work with faculty in their laboratory to gain experience in areas of interest to you that goes beyond the subjects required.
There are directed and independent study courses, including research courses, that provide you with opportunities to pursue your own interests while being mentored by an interested faculty member.
Internship and Co-op Opportunities
Over 150 companies come to campus to recruit students for employment, internships and co-ops biannually at our career fairs. Aeronautical engineering degrees are in demand for a large number of these companies. You will have the opportunity to meet with many such companies throughout your years at Clarkson.
