M.S. in Airworthiness Engineering
Program updated effective January, 1, 2021
The Master of Science in Airworthiness Engineering (MSAWE) degree program will educate participants in the foundational elements of airworthiness engineering as they apply to aerospace vehicle certification, comprehensively exploring relevant civil and military airworthiness requirements to provide an understanding of the implications and impact on manned, unmanned, and other innovative vehicle systems.
Official transcript(s) from the accredited degree conferring institution(s) and transcripts reflecting graduate level coursework.
- Applicants must possess a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics, Math, OR an ABET accredited (EAC) Engineering degree; exceptions to this will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
- Applicants must demonstrate a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale, at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
EXCEPTIONS: Applicants who fail to satisfy the guidelines for full admission may be considered for conditional admission under circumstances determined by the Admissions Office or Program Chair. Applicants will be required to submit the following documentation in addition to official transcripts:
