Focus on Aerospace Engineering or Mechanical Engineering
AME offers Bachelor of Science degrees in aerospace engineering and mechanical engineering. Curriculum for both provides a broad, well-balanced foundation in engineering.
BS in Aerospace Engineering
Students in UA aerospace engineering typically are aiming for careers in aircraft design and space exploration. Study includes the following subject areas:
- Control system design
- Fluid mechanics
- Gas dynamics
- Solid mechanics
BS in Mechanical Engineering
Students in UA mechanical engineering typically are looking to design, analyze, manufacture and maintain mechanical systems in a variety of industries. Study includes the following subject areas:
- Dynamics and controls
- Mechanical design
- Solid and fluid mechanics
- Thermal sciences
UA AME is proud to offer a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering at UA Jakarta, a dual degree program with Sampoerna University, Indonesia's premier international university.
The aerospace engineering program includes specialized courses in space systems, propulsion and aircraft design. Mechanical engineering centers on physics, mathematics and materials. Both degree programs include a focus on instrumentation and materials strength, with hands-on laboratory courses and research opportunities.
