Tactical and strategic missile technology and design
MetadataShow full item record
The Mechanical and Astronautical Engineering Department has missile track options within our standard Master’s degree program. One track is for tactical missiles and the other is for strategic (U.S. Only) missiles. Each track provides a series of courses over the span of one year which cover critical technology areas related to tactical and ballistic missile design and operation. The course content is supplemented with the participation of system integrators, such as Raytheon Missile Systems which bring a real-world view to the tactical missile design course and improves the value and applicability of the material covered. Faculty members also often introduce material from ongoing research activities in their respective specialty areas to expose students to current problems associated with modern missile systems.
