Aerospace Systems Design

Aerospace Systems Design involves the study of methods and techniques necessary for the design of aerospace systems and their components. The courses in this option provide opportunities to gain exposure to design methods and to gain experience through design projects. The topics addressed include requirements definition, functional decomposition, concept synthesis, application of design-oriented analysis methods, and optimization. Because aerospace systems are highly interdisciplinary, a systems perspective is encouraged to ensure that students are aware of how design decisions impact numerous features of the aerospace system.
