Bachelor's Degree in Aerospace Engineering (BSAE) Aerospace engineering explores both the design and manufacture of aircraft, as well as the design and flight of vehicles beyond the earth�s atmosphere. Knowledge of aerodynamics, structures and materials, propulsion systems, and flight mechanics and controls are important to this field. Aerospace engineers are primarily employed in civil aeronautics, the defense industry and the space program. However, applications of aerospace technology are also found in related areas such as ground and undersea transportation systems, pollution control, wind power and the effects of wind on structures, and the development and use of advanced materials.
