Space exploration has been in the background in recent years, but that situation should be changing. Planned SpaceX missions to the moon, and future exploration of the planet Mars, has generated more buzz around space technology. In addition, the rebound in air travel after the COVID-19 pandemic means a pickup in business for aircraft manufacturers after a few slow years.
The bottom line is that engineers will be needed to design future vehicles for air and space travel, as well as meet national security needs. Although projected growth rates for aerospace engineers are in the single digits, new engineers will be needed to replace retiring engineers. These engineers will be needed to design systems increasingly dependent on software, AI, and robotics.
The following list, compiled by U.S. News and World Report, are top undergraduate schools with aerospace engineering programs where the highest engineering degree offered is a doctorate.
