The Technology concentration is designed for students seeking preparation for advanced study at the graduate level. Students will receive a strong background in mathematics, the sciences, engineering technology, and the more technical courses in aerospace. In addition to aerospace specific coursework, the concentration’s curriculum requires the completion of minors in Mathematics and Engineering Technology, two semesters of computer programming and calculus-based physics, and the completion of a senior research project. Aerospace Technology students have access to an array of research resources to include wind tunnels, water tunnels, small unmanned aircraft, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software operating on workstation computers, and undergraduate grant funding provided by MTSU’s Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (URECA) program. Motivated Aerospace Technology students with high academic abilities are encouraged to choose a double major in either Professional Mathematics or Professional Physics.
