List of Aerospace Universities and Colleges in the U.S.
The aerospace industry is responsible for the design and development of aircraft, spacecraft, rockets, missiles and other flying mechanisms. Prospective students must consider such things as the aerospace programs available, research and work-study opportunities and a university's accreditation status.
How to Select an Aerospace School
Astronautics deals with the design and manufacturing of spacecraft, rockets and their systems for flight outside of the Earth's atmosphere. While some schools combine both of these concentrations, others offer them as separate concentrations. Many universities offer aerospace programs and scholarships through the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corp (ROTC).
Consider the following when looking for aerospace schools:
- Students looking at aerospace science colleges need to consider what branch of aerospace to study.
- Students also must decide whether or not they are going into the military or want military training.
- Additional concerns when selecting an aerospace university include available research programs, work-study opportunities and internships.
