The 30 credit hours must include at least five courses in aerospace engineering at the 500 level or higher (excluding directed study courses and seminars) and two approved courses in mathematics from the list below. Also, up to six credit hours of directed study (AEROSP 590) and three credit hours of AEROSP 585. seminar series may be elected. Students are encouraged to take advantage of directed study and become involved in research as part of their MSE experience. The MSE program does not include an option for a thesis per se; however, through AEROSP 590, students can perform research work in close supervision of a faculty member and investigate a problem of common interest, resulting in a paper of publishable quality, if they so choose. Students should become acquainted with the research work being performed in the department and then contact faculty members with whom they find common research interest.

The courses that satisfy the Math requirement include:

  • AEROSP 523. (MECHENG 523) Computational Fluid Dynamics I
  • AEROSP 623. Computational Fluid Dynamics II
  • EECS 501. Probability and Random Processes
  • EECS 502. Stochastic Processes
  • EECS 560. (MECHENG 564, AEROSP 550) Linear Systems Theory
  • EECS 562. (AEROSP 551) Nonlinear Systems and Control
  • Math 419. (EECS 400) Linear Spaces and Matrix Theory
  • Math 451. Advanced Calculus I
  • Math 452. Advanced Calculus II
  • Math 454. Boundary Value Problems for Partial Differential Equations
  • Math 471. Introduction to Numerical Methods
  • Math 525. (STAT 525) Probability Theory
  • Math 555. Introduction to Complex Variables
  • Math 556. Methods of Applied Mathematics I
  • Math 557. Methods of Applied Mathematics II
  • Math 561. (IOE 510) Linear Programming I
  • Math 562. Continuous Optimization Methods
  • Math 571. Numerical Linear Algebra
  • Math 572. Numerical Methods for Scientific Computing II
  • Math 602. Real Analysis II
  • Math 654. Introduction to Mathematical
  • MECHENG 501. Analytical Methods in Mechanics
  • MECHENG 502. Methods of Differential Equations in Mechanics
  • NERS 571. Intermediate Plasma Physics I
  • Physics 451, 452. Methods of Theoretical Physics

In special circumstances, and with the prior approval of the Graduate Chair, a student may elect other primarily mathematical courses offered by the departments of Mathematics, Statistics and/or Physics in support to a tailored program. The following courses cannot be used to satisfy the mathematics requirement: Math 404, Math 417, Math 448 and Math 450.
