Smart. Selective. Resourceful.
All words that describe applicants to the Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering. More than 97 percent of our incoming students have taken AP calculus. Many refused to apply anywhere else.
But it's their ambitions that best define the students accepted into the AE undergraduate program. Our students know they will have to work hard to realize their dreams, and they are willing to give it everything they have to make that happen.
The AE undergraduate program is the path to that goal: a combination of classroom, laboratory, and research experience that gives students knowledge and skills that meet and exceed the demands of today's workplace. The curriculum includes 132 credit-hours, culminating, senior year, with the completion of a capstone research project in one of three application areas: rotorcraft, fixed-wing, and spacecraft.
Undergraduate admissions are handled through the Georgia Tech Office of Undergraduate Admissions. The School of Aerospace Engineering hosts information sessions on Mondays and Fridays at 8 a.m. in Montgomery Knight Building in Room 325, on an as-requested basis. These days and times have been chosen so that you may also attend other valuable information sessions and campus tours. You are strongly encouraged to schedule your visit by e-mailing us two weeks ahead of time.
Transferring to AE
Undergraduates with a strong academic track record and a commitment to research are encouraged to apply to the Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering. A complete course transfer evaluation will be done when you have been accepted to Tech. The Institute will determine whether you have completed courses that transfer credit.
The AE Curriculum
The core undergraduate curriculum is built on fundamental disciplines necessary to understand the design and performance of aerospace vehicles and their integrated subsystems. If you join us, you will also develop crucial professional and engineering skills that you will need when you enter the workforce. Co-ops, internships, international study, and research are just some of the ways you can tailor your undergraduate education at AE.
