College Info:

Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, commonly known as Virginia Tech and by the initials VT and VPI, is a public, land-grant, research university with its main campus in Blacksburg, Virginia. It also has educational facilities in six regions statewide and a study-abroad site in Riva San Vitale, Switzerland. Through its Corps of Cadets ROTC program, Virginia Tech is also designated as one of six senior military colleges in the United States.
Virginia Tech offers 280 undergraduate and graduate degree programs to some 34,400 students and manages a research portfolio of $522 million, placing it 46th among universities in the U.S. for research expenditures and the only Virginia school listed among the top 50. Virginia Tech is the state’s second-largest public university by enrollment.

Course Info:

AOE undergraduate students embark upon a rigorous course of study and research, which grounds them in the fundamentals of aerospace and ocean engineering while launching them into aeronautics, astronautics, and hydronautics careers.In the fields of aeronautics and astronautics, aerospace engineers apply science and technology to the challenges of moving through air (aero) and space (astro).While aeronautics and astronautics have different environmental challenges, the two fields often overlap because they operate on the same fundamental principles.

Aerospace engineers make spacecraft faster, airplanes safer, and drones more intelligent. They are building complex systems to simulate flight tactics, designing pressure suits for space walks, and writing the computer code that controls aircraft systems.

Aerospace engineering has a proud history of first lifting people off the ground and then into space. By designing and developing cutting-edge tools, aerospace engineers are now pushing us into new exploration environments.
