Meet a few current Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering students and faculty, learn about what Aerospace & Mechanical Engineers study, hear why students choose to study Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering, and see the research and career opportunities available here at Viterbi!
Aerospace and Mechanical Engineers design complex mechanical, thermal, fluidic, acoustical, optical, and electronic systems, with characteristic sizes ranging from microns to tens of kilometers. Such systems are used everywhere, from the depths of the ocean and far underground, to near-earth, planetary, interplanetary, and galactic space. Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering (AME) students conduct basic and applied research within and across the usual disciplinary boundaries. AME students develop core and valuable problem-solving skills in the areas of aerodynamics, mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, materials and design. Our graduates are at the leading edge of academia and industry, tackling innovative, important and exciting challenges.
