Aerospace Engineering Courses 2019-24

The Aerospace Engineering 2019-24 Course Schedule

The Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering has projected its course schedule for the five-year period beginning with the Fall 2019. You may download that entire schedule as a PDF here, or view each yearly schedule on pages referenced to the right (see box).

These listings are provided to assist you and your advisor in customizing your coursework. You are encouraged to review not only the current year's listings, but the full list of courses available over the long-run. This will allow for optimal planning for off-campus opportunities such as study abroad semesters, research, internships, and co-ops.

Please note that this course schedule can vary, according to instructor availability and registration demands. It will be updated at the beginning of each semester, but, for the most current listing of the present and next semesters, students should  always rely on OSCAR.
