The Master of Science in Aerospace Systems Engineering (M.S.A.S.E.) program is designed to provide graduate study opportunities focused on theoretical study and practical experience in aerospace systems engineering that will effectively prepare them for the job markets or further doctoral study.
- Accredited by the Higher Learning Commission
- Graduate students have access to a wide range of modern facilities at Wright State including classrooms, laboratories, and computer systems interconnected by local and wide-area communication networks. Graduate research is not limited to the facilities on campus.

The M.S.A.S.E. program differs from traditional Aerospace Engineering programs in that it requires breadth via requirement of cross disciplinary study modeled after our highly ranked PhD program and thus forms both the strongly needed systems understanding required in modern aerospace programs as well as a natural stepping stone for a PhD program.
Programme learning outcomes:
- Demonstrate a knowledge of fluid or structural systems related to the aerospace field. - Demonstrate competency in a type of numerical methods related to the aerospace field. - Demonstrate engineering competency in one of the following sub‐specialties: Industrial and Human Systems, Sensors and Signals, Materials and Nanotechnology, Controls and Robotics, Computer Science, or Medical/Biological Systems - Recognize the need for life‐long learning. - Demonstrate their ability to communicate engineering ideas and techniques. - Demonstrate a mathematical competency above that of an undergraduate engineering student.
Format and assessment
Students must choose either a thesis option or advanced course work option. Students employed as teaching or research assistants through the School of Graduate Studies at any time during their degree candidacy must choose the thesis option.
Thesis Option: A thesis satisfying all requirements of the School of Graduate Studies must be completed and successfully defended in an oral examination before the major committee. Up to 9 credit hours of thesis may count toward degree requirements of 30 total graduate credit hours. The thesis hours will be registered in the home department of the advisor.
