The purpose of the aerospace engineering certificate program is to provide students with a formalized recognition of an emphasis in aerospace engineering subjects as part of their engineering undergraduate degree program. In addition, this certificate program will increase the  state-wide and nation-wide recognition of UK’s involvement in aerospace education and research.

At UK, as at most universities, the fundamental and applied courses necessary for a career in aerospace engineering are taught in various departments. The UK Aerospace Certificate option will provide students with multidisciplinary experience in aerospace systems and in aerospace specializations, preparing them to join the aerospace workforce.

There are specialty areas in the Aerospace Engineering Certificate program, each with a minimum of 12 credit hours. A 2.5 GPA is required for acceptance into the program.

Visit here for the required course lists. Students should plan to register for EGR 390 in their final term.

I decided to do the aerospace certificate at UK because mechanical engineering is really broad, and I wanted to focus it down on something a little bit more specific that I was really interested in. Plus, aerospace is at the cutting edge of humanity--it's an exciting area of development. And UK has a lot of really good faculty for it, so I knew that I would be able to have an opportunity get a really quality education with it.
