Our mission is two-fold: to perform research dedicated to advancing the state-of-the-art disciplines, systems, and design and analysis methods needed to further our nation's aerospace enterprise, and to educate our students to be lifetime learners, entrepreneurs, achievers, and leaders.
With a history rich with six Guggenheim Medal recipients and 14 living members of the National Academy of Engineering, our faculty and emeriti faculty continue to be among the most highly decorated in the world. However, it is because of our amazingly talented students that we continue to be ranked among the top of all aerospace engineering departments in the nation.
