Program Educational Outcomes for Aerospace Engineering:

  • Many interested Auburn Aerospace graduates will successfully pursue advanced degrees in engineering, law, business, or medicine.
  • Many Auburn Aerospace graduates will contribute in support and/or leadership positions in industry, academia, and/or government and professional aerospace organizations to maintain U.S. technical superiority in aerospace engineering.
  • All Auburn Aerospace graduates will recognize the need to maintain and increase the depth and breadth of their competency in their area(s) of expertise (which may turn out to be areas other than aerospace engineering) by engaging in individual programs of life-long learning.

Student Outcomes for Aerospace Engineering:

  • Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics;
  • Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors;
  • Communicate effectively with a range of audiences;
  • Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts;
  • Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives;
  • Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions;
  • Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
