Our Students

Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) students will contribute to the economic growth and well-being of the state, the nation and the world, and to the advancement of knowledge in the mechanical and aerospace sciences. Our students acquire skills to address both fundamental issues in mechanical and aerospace engineering and to design complex, multi-component systems for a wide range of applications. 

However, the cost of tuition is a financial challenge for many students, especially those from nontraditional backgrounds. Please help our students realize their educational goals by donating today. All funds given in this category will be used to provide scholarships and fellowships to support MAE students.
