Virginia Tech offers courses toward the Master of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering concentrating on aerodynamics, structures, propulsion, and flight mechanics. Courses will be offered using an internet only delivery method. There will be both synchronous (two-way, live communication between student and professor) and asynchronous (downloadable, prerecorded lectures) components. Presentation materials will be packaged into downloadable modules that you can view at your convenience. One hour each week, there will be a live internet meeting of the class where you can interact with the professor. During this session, the professor will present interactive materials, answer questions on the lectures, go over homework, etc. You will need access to an internet connection, a computer with speakers, and a microphone (a headset is a highly recommended option). The software required for this connection will be a browser plug-in that we provide. Instruction is by both faculty and practicing professionals.
Thirty credit hours are required for the M.S. degree. The coursework must include four core courses (12 cr.). These will be offered on a two year rotation, one each in the fall and spring semesters. (Some may be offered more often.) The suggested load is 1 or 2 courses per semester. A final comprehensive oral exam will be required of all students upon completion of the degree requirements.
