AE has largest BS graduating class in over a dozen years
A total of 98 individuals earned bachelor’s degrees over the year. Another 30 students earned master’s degrees, 6 students earned master’s degrees through AE’s online program, and 8 earned PhDs.
Graduating classes in the near future could well be even larger. For the first time in decades, undergraduate enrollment surpassed 500 students in fall 2015, and the graduate student number, with a total of 161 individuals, had doubled over the past 10 years.
Companies including Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Rolls-Royce, Northrop Grumman, Aerospace Corporation, Wolfram, Caterpillar, Rockwell Collins, and SpaceX will employ some of the new AE alumni, while others will continue on in graduate school at Illinois, Purdue University, the University of Washington, Colorado University and other institutions.
