List of Aeronautics Universities and Schools in the U.S.

A bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering is the minimum educational requirement to enter this technical field. Bachelor degree holders who wish to advance into managerial positions can also choose to complete a master's degree. Both degree types are offered by 4-year universities and aeronautical institutes.

How to Select an Aeronautics School

Aeronautics encompasses stability and control, aerodynamics, materials and structures and propulsion. Students enrolled in one of the two degree options for aerospace engineering are required to complete foundation courses in each of these fundamental areas of aeronautics.

Consider the following when looking for aeronautics schools:

  • While a prospective student can enroll in each program separately, some schools do offer combined bachelor's and master's degree programs in the field.
  • An internship is strongly encouraged for those students who want to enter the job market rather than pursue an advanced degree.
  • Prospective aeronautics students should also consider schools and universities that offer engineering camps or programs that supplement their program of study.
