2 United States Air Force Academy USAFA, CO

Imagine being part of a team challenged with designing, fabricating, testing, and launching a rocket into space. Students who thrive on such hands-on activities often find the Air Force Academy an ideal place to learn engineering. The Academy features some of the most cutting-edge technologies available anywhere to undergraduates. One such gem is the Applied Mechanics Laboratory. In this highly modern, well-equipped “workshop,” cadets learn how to use everything from a computer-controlled mill to composite material fabrication tools. The similarly impressive Astronautics Laboratories contain high-fidelity orbital analysis software and facilities for small satellite design. Faculty— about 70 percent of whom are military officers— provide guidance both in class and after hours. Instructors favor seminar-style classes over lectures, and they expect students to come to class ready to participate. (Curriculum guidelines suggest two hours of homework/study for every hour in class.) Cadets, who become second lieutenants in the U.S. Air Force upon graduation, leave equipped with a solid foundation in general engineering and in their specific discipline be it aeronautical, astronautical, civil, computer, electrical, mechanical, or systems engineering.

4 University of Colorado Boulder Boulder, CO

You want to launch a career that will take you to incredible heights. With the Aerospace Engineering Sciences program you can do just that. Undergraduate and graduate students work alongside faculty in cutting edge research facilities. Together these teams design, build, and operate technology that takes flight. This includes craft like satellites, rockets, drones and the systems that power them. Students in this program have recently managed the orbit of a NASA satellite traveling 55 million miles away from Earth, something no other college students in the country have done. Others have been building a drone that can be used to detect rhino poachers in Africa for an international wildlife conservation competition. Students solve real world problems through hands-on learning and this is just a glimpse into the aerospace program’s many high-tech happenings. Whether you are pursuing a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctorate degree, the University of Colorado Boulder ranks within the top 10 schools for this program nationally. It is the perfect combination of an out-of-this-world education with a down-to-earth campus experience.
