The College of Aeronautics and Engineering (CAE) is producing agents of change. Passionate students experience immersive instruction that will prepare them to compete in a rapidly changing global economy. Our academic programs are supported by cutting-edge research and state-of-the-art facilities designed to prepare students in the fields of aerospace engineering, mechatronics engineering, cybersecurity engineering and others that are vital to business, manufacturing and aviation.

“We’ve created a unique academic experience for our students through the intentional synergistic engagement of aeronautics, engineering and technology disciplines. Graduates of our programs are trained to find opportunities in uncertainty, as they learn through collaboration and perseverance to face our unpredictable world head-on.”

    This new maintenance facility will provide the latest and most innovative hardware, simulators and facilities to train cohorts of students to obtain certifications.

The workforce is in great need of highly skilled aeronautic and engineering professionals and CAE is positioned to deliver on that void. In order to meet the demand, the college needs additional lab, office and classroom spaces in the Aeronautics and Engineering Building on the Kent Campus. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts significant growth in the demand for engineers in the coming decade and companies will struggle to fill these positions. CAE is stepping up to fill this workforce gap while leading the way in the development of unique and innovative programming.

 

"The Building Expansion will add 40,000 square feet to the existing Aeronautics and Engineering Building. This will add 50 percent more space to accommodate the college’s dramatic growth in student enrollment, indicated by a 52 percent increase in the fall 2019 incoming class."
