Minor in Aerospace Engineering

http://www.catalog.gatech.edu/programs/minor-aerospace-engineering/

The School of Aerospace Engineering offers a minor in aerospace engineering for students majoring in all disciplines (other than AE) at Georgia Tech. In partnership with other units on campus, the School also offers interdisciplinary minors in the areas of energy systems, and scientific and engineering computing. The AE minor must comprise at least 15 credit hours, of which at least 9 credit hours are upper-division coursework (numbered 3000 or above). All courses counting toward the minor must be taken on a letter-grade basis and must be completed with a grade of C or higher. Minor Program of Study & Guidelines AE website Minor Information Requirements Guidelines and Exceptions A maximum of 3 credit hours of AE 3355 / AE 4355 may be applied to satisfy the Minor. Maximum of 1 credit hour of research credit ( AE 2699 / AE 4699 ) may be used. No more than 6 credit hours of Special Topics courses may be included. If one credit hour research is taken, then only 5 credit hours of Special Topics is allowed. No Special Problems or Internship coursework may be used. Students may not use AE 3515 to satisfy their Minor requirements if they use ME 3015 or ECE 3085 to satisfy their Major requirements. A maximum of 3 semester hours of transfer credit may be used to satisfy the course requirements for a minor. This includes courses taken at another institution or credit earned through the AP or IB program, assuming the scores meet Georgia Tech minimum standards. It is the major advisor’s responsibility to verify that students are using only courses from the designated block(s) from the student’s major field of study that are allowed to satisfy a minor program, that they are not using any Core Area A-E courses (including humanities and social sciences), and that they are not using any courses for more than one minor or certificate. Any free elective course used to satisfy the course requirements of the student’s major degree program may also be used to satisfy the course requirements for a minor.

Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering

http://www.catalog.gatech.edu/programs/aerospace-engineering-bs/

The first year focuses on coursework in the areas of chemistry, mathematics, physics, humanities, social sciences. The second year adds coursework in general engineering sciences and aerospace specific disciplines. The third and fourth years emphasize aerospace disciplines, vehicle systems integration and design, and Options courses that allow students to individualize their education.The undergraduate curriculum is designed to provide each student with a general background for employment in industry or government, or advanced study in graduate school at the end of four years. The program stresses the analytical, experimental, and design aspects of aerospace engineering. A certain degree of specialization is available to undergraduate students through the proper choice of Options and through a choice of air- or space-focused tracks. In addition, opportunities for undergraduate research and team competition courses are available, depending on the student's abilities and career objectives. Courses do not have to be taken during the specific semester indicated in the curriculum, but all prerequisites must be satisfied for each course. Advisement is encouraged before registration, with each student assigned a faculty advisor who remains the same for the full undergraduate program, unless the student requests a change. Students should consult with academic advisors for the availability of courses and recommended course sequences. Educational Objectives The undergraduate aerospace engineering degree program is designed to achieve the following objectives: Our graduates will be technically proficient and effective leaders and entrepreneurs. They will display high professional and ethical standards in aerospace engineering and related fields, and within industry, academia, and government. Our graduates will create new knowledge and engineering practices and develop products and services that have a global impact. They will collaborate with international partners and engage in culturally diverse teams. Our graduates will be life-long learners, continually developing their leadership, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. They will be actively engaged in the acquisition and advancement of knowledge and technical expertise through research and development, and through active participation in professional societies, graduate studies, conferences, and symposia. Our graduates will transfer the knowledge gained from their aerospace engineering degrees to new fields that intersect with aerospace engineering such as robotics, medicine, and clean energy. They will use their degrees as a launching point for careers in other professional fields such as law, medicine, and public service.
