Rockets, airplanes, autonomous systems – AeroAstro students agree: our program is stimulating, rigorous, challenging, and fun. As we hear from students in other MIT departments, “You guys do the coolest stuff!”

The AeroAstro (or Course 16 as we’re known at MIT) undergraduate program prepares our students for exciting careers in aerospace and related engineering fields, and for continuing on to graduate school. Employers place a premium on MIT graduates knowing that AeroAstro alumni are the best-prepared aerospace engineers in the world.

And, while undergraduates normally choose their majors as sophomores, there are lots of opportunities in AeroAstro for first-year students.
