Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

Department of Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering

The Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Department offers programs to future engineers who want to work on projects near and far and big and small.

The exciting, constantly changing field of Aerospace Engineering (AE) pushes the envelope on new technology and is concerned with any vehicle moving through the atmosphere, space, or even traveling on the surface of another planet.

Mechanical Engineering (ME) is a broad and continuously evolving field that focuses on the design of machines and mechanical systems from miniature machines and Micro-Electrical-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) to incredibly large and complex systems like the space shuttle launch vehicle.

The Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering degree program at Embry-Riddle Prescott will help you grow as an individual by pushing you to learn and understand what it takes to become a successful engineer. We offer a choice of curriculum tracks — Aeronautical (aircraft) or Astronautical (spacecraft) design in AE and Robotics (autonomous vehicles) and Propulsion (gas turbines) design in ME — so that you can apply your engineering knowledge and creativity to a project that you are passionate about.

Aerospace or mechanical engineering? | Yahoo Answers

Do you have a love of fluid dynamics, heat transfer, and finite element analysis type programs? Is your dream job at NASA, Boeing, or Pratt and Whitney? That would describe Aero I believe, but I don't personally swing that way.
My university only had mechanical with and Aero minor as undergrad, then you could choose Aero if you went on to graduate studies. If you are undecided, I would go with Mechanical since the area of studies is more general. Also, I believe most places will have the first couple years of classes be very similar (to give you a solid engineering grounding). At that…

Whats the difference between aerospace and mechanical engineer? | Yahoo Answers

I suppose that aerospace engineers have to concentrate on lightness and specifying service life bearing in mind that for aerospace equipment there are no garages in space and precious few in under-developed countries.Mechanical engineers will be concerned in aerospace and will face same disciplines but in non-aerospace a little more meat can be left to increase safety margins and design life.
