Texas A&M University, Aerospace Engineering Department

As a major department within the Texas A&M University College of Engineering, we are excited and proud to be among the top aerospace engineering programs in the United States by providing unique cutting-edge educational and research opportunities in areas including space exploration, national defense, air transportation, communications and sustainable energy.

Our History

To prepare students for careers in modern aviation, Texas A&M introduced its first aeronautical courses in 1928. This introduction into the field led to the establishment of the Department of Aeronautical Engineering in 1940. By 1963, as the nation was in the midst of the space race and dreaming of exploring the universe, the department expanded to include the study of astronautics and was renamed the Department of Aerospace Engineering.

Through our rich history, we have continued to evolve and today offer our students a modern curriculum balanced across four principal disciplines of aerospace engineering:

  • Aerodynamics and Propulsion
  • Dynamics and Control
  • Materials and Structures
  • Systems, Design and Human Integration

Students also benefit from the program's strong connections to major aerospace industries, the Department of Defense and NASA.
