Message from the Chair
Greetings and Welcome to the University of Michigan Department of Aerospace Engineering. If you are looking for the leaders and best in the field of aeronautics and space, you have come to the right place. I have the great pleasure of chairing the very first aeronautical degree-granting program in the nation. Since 1914, more than 6,000 alumni have impacted the world for good and continue to do so today. You can learn more about the history of our Department on our History page.
Our undergraduate and graduate aerospace engineering programs rank within the top five in the nation with US News & World Report. With our award winning students, student teams, and faculty researchers, Michigan Aerospace will inevitably play a big role in autonomy, high-speed vehicles and commercial space, which will shape the future of aerospace. Our Department continues to learn and to grow a diverse community of faculty, students and staff. Many of our students serve on several Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) student committees as well as our Department level DEI committee with faculty and staff members. We feel it is of utmost importance to hear the voices of our students and empower them to be advocates of change inside and outside of the classroom.
Please continue to explore our website to learn more about our Mission and Research. In addition, do not be a stranger! You can always see what we are up to by visiting our News Center. If you do not have time to visit, consider subscribing to our newsletter.

We are committed to a department culture that supports and celebrates each of our members in their studies and their work.
