The Master of Science in Guidance, Control and Dynamics (MSAE) is designed to prepare students for careers as engineers in the aerospace industry. The curriculum is developed with strong emphasis in courses related to guidance control and dynamics with applications in aerospace engineering.

The MSAE is awarded upon completion of a minimum of 30 credit hours, including 9 credit hours of required courses, 15 credit hours of elective courses selected from an approved list of courses, and an additional 6 credit hours in either a thesis or nonthesis option.

Total Credit Hours Required: 30 Credit Hours Minimum beyond the Bachelor's Degree
