About this program

Aerospace Engineering - B.S.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering focuses on the application of engineering principles to the design, manufacturing, and functionality of aerospace vehicles such as aircraft, missiles and spacecraft, to include autonomous and semi-autonomous unmanned aerial systems. Students gain an in-depth knowledge of aerodynamics, engineering materials and processes, structures, propulsion, flight mechanics, and control, while being exposed to orbital mechanics, space structures, and rocket propulsion.

Admission requirements

The university affirmatively strives to provide educational opportunities and access to students with varied backgrounds, those with special talents and adult students who graduated from high school three or more years ago.

Admission to the Aerospace Engineering major is selective.

Freshmen Students:

Admission into the Aerospace Engineering major requires a minimum 3.0 high school GPA; and a minimum 24 ACT composite score (minimum 24 ACT sub-scores in both English and math) or a minimum 1160 SAT score (minimum 580 sub-scores in both mathematics and evidence-based reading and writing); and placement directly into MATH 12002 (or its equivalent).

Students who do not meet these requirements may apply for admission to the Aeronautical Systems Engineering Technology major and request to change their program to the Aerospace Engineering major after their freshman year if they meet the following criteria: minimum 3.200 overall Kent State GPA and minimum B grade in both MATH 12002 and PHY 23101.

English Language Proficiency Requirements for International Students:

All international students must provide proof of English language proficiency (unless they meet specific exceptions) by earning a minimum 525 TOEFL score (71 on the Internet-based version), minimum 75 MELAB score, minimum 6.0 IELTS score or minimum 48 PTE Academic score, or by completing the ELS level 112 Intensive Program.

Transfer Students:

Admission into the Aerospace Engineering major requires minimum 12 credit hours in college-level coursework with a minimum 3.200 overall GPA and a minimum B grade in both MATH 12002 and PHY 23101 (or their equivalents). Transfer students who have completed fewer than 12 credit hours of college-level coursework will be evaluated on both collegiate and high school records and must submit a final high school transcript and an ACT or SAT score.
