A master's degree in aerospace engineering from North Carolina State will build on your baccalaureate engineering degree by providing you with advanced knowledge and skills. You will choose a concentration in aerodynamics, fluid mechanics, and propulsion; or in aerospace structures, materials and control; and complete your curriculum with additional related coursework in engineering, mathematics, or statistics.

The ten classes in your program are designed and taught by regular NC State faculty. Lectures are captured, digitized, and delivered to you completely online by streaming video, and are enhanced by various interactive Internet-based learning applications. Convenience and flexibility are key advantages of this program. The MSAE degree is a 30-credit-hour degree program that does not require the GRE, a thesis, a final oral exam, or on-campus attendance.

NC State's online courses are the same as on-campus courses in terms of content, quality, and academic rigor. You will register for classes through the Engineering Online website rather than the University's MyPack Portal system. You may take up to four courses as a post-baccalaureate student before applying formally to the degree program.
