The purpose of the aerospace certificate program is to provide students with a formalized recognition of an emphasis in aerospace subjects as part of their undergraduate degree program. In addition, this certificate program will increase the state-wide and nation-wide recognition of UK’s involvement in aerospace education and research.
At UK, as at most universities, the fundamental and applied courses necessary for a career in aerospace engineering are taught in various departments. The UK Aerospace Certificate option will provide students with multidisciplinary experience in aerospace systems and in aerospace specializations, preparing them to join the aerospace workforce.
