Purdue University has played a leading role in providing the engineers who designed, built, tested, and flew the many aircraft and spacecraft that so changed human progress during the 20th century. Purdue's highly ranked program is one of the worldï¿½s leading producers of undergraduate and graduate degrees in aerospace engineering. The University's alumni have led significant advances in the development of aerospace technology, have headed major aerospace corporations and government agencies, and have established an amazing record for exploration of space. More than one-third of all US manned space flights have had at least one crew member who was a Purdue graduate (including the first and last men to step foot on the moon).
The Aeronautics and Astronautics program achieved standing as a separate school within the College of Engineering at Purdue University in 1945. The first edition of this book was published in 1995, at the time of the school's 50th anniversary. This expanded second edition brings the programï¿½s illustrious history up to date, and looks to Purdue's future in the sky and in space.
