Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering
Design aircraft, or explore the universe in aerospace engineering. Work in a highly multi-disciplinary field, working with all facets of machines and designs in mechanical engineering.
From super-efficient subsonic jet liners to a trans-atmospheric aircraft that can fly into orbit, aerospace engineers create new technologies in commercial aviation, defense systems, and space exploration. An aerospace engineering major at SLU provides a challenging technical education with a strong emphasis on understanding complex systems.
It launches your career with easy access to a sophisticated computer-aided design laboratory, wind tunnels, a water tunnel, a structures laboratory, and a reconfigurable engineering flight simulator. In addition, the practice of design skills is carefully integrated into the majority of the engineering courses. The design experience culminates in a sequence of two capstone design courses during the senior year.

Mechanical Engineering is a broad and challenging engineering program. Mechanical engineers create products and systems ranging from consumer products to automated processes that are essential to our society.
A mechanical engineering education at SLU provides a unique, intellectually challenging, hands-on curriculum that integrates a broad-based technical knowledge with tangible skills. The students learn the principles of solid modeling during the first two semesters of study. Thereafter, they study creative problem-solving, design and product realization.
Laboratory experiences in fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, machine shop, wind tunnels, water tunnel and mechatronics labs complement lectures.

Experiential Learning To Set You Apart From The Competition
The practice of design skills is carefully integrated into the majority of the engineering courses. The design experience culminates in a sequence of two capstone design courses during the senior year. In these courses, students work closely with faculty and industry to produce innovative designs.
Throughout their years of study, students enjoy excellent opportunities to participate in professional organizations as well as co-op and summer internships.
