Undergraduate Program

Cal Poly Pomona Aerospace Engineering Department is one of the largest aerospace engineering programs in California. The Department offers a variety of courses tailored for the aerospace industry. Our philosophy is "Learn by Doing," which is reflected in our classes, projects, and research activities.

We train students with expertise essential for today's aerospace engineers. The students begin aerospace-related courses as freshmen, including several hands-on projects and activities, and these activities continue throughout the program.
The curriculum offers courses in both aeronautics and astronautics, and the students choose one of these emphasis areas in their junior year. The technical elective courses are designed to provide a unique skill set for our graduates which will be valuable in their professional career, distinguishing them from other applicants.

Our close relationship with local aerospace companies presents opportunities for internship and job for our students. It also provides valuable insight for advancement of our curriculum in the direction demanded by this industry.

Students desiring to major in Aerospace Engineering should have a particularly high aptitude for science and mathematics, and incoming first-year students should have completed substantial college preparatory courses in these disciplines in high school. Incoming transfer students should have completed at least one year of college calculus and one year of college physics (with laboratory) before beginning the program at Cal Poly Pomona. Community college students planning to transfer into this Department should consult a school counselor to determine which courses meet the program requirements.
