Our department offers a Doctoral program that leads to the award of a Ph.D. This degree is a research degree that recognizes mastery of a field of study, a demonstrated ability to conduct independent research, and the dissemination of significant and original contributions to the body of knowledge in that field.
Students are admitted to study leading toward the Ph.D. degree in Aeronautical, Astronautical, or Space Systems, with concentration in one of the three major divisions of the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. A pro-tem advisor will be appointed by the Department to assist each full-time student in program planning.
