Rules for Intellectual Breadth Electives, Technical Electives and General Electives selection are available here link to requirements document. Most AEROSP courses are offered every semester providing flexibility for students to plan their schedule according to their interests and needs, particularly in the junior and senior years.
Sample schedules are available for: aerospace programaeronautics trackand the astronautics track. Intellectual breadth 16 credits See the College of Engineering Bulletin for rules in selecting Intellectual Breadth courses that satisfy this requirement. A total of 7 credits of technical elective courses is required. The courses must be upper division that is level or above courses from engineering, mathematics, physical science, or other courses approved by an academic adviser, that are chosen to satisfy the following constraints:.
One course of 3 or more credits must be advanced mathematics or advanced science; this could include a course in astronomy, biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, or physics. Other courses can be selected if approved by an academic adviser. Aerospace Engineering students can earn directed study credit based on successful completion of pilot training activities according to the following procedures:. This exam is typically taken as part of a ground school course that covers basic knowledge required for a private pilot license.
Students requesting this credit must bring their FAA exam paperwork to the cognizant Aerospace Engineering faculty member for approval. More advanced FAA-issued ratings such as instrument, instructor, instrument instructor and multi-engine are acceptable but cannot be used to obtain additional credit.
Students eligible for this credit must either obtain their license while a University of Michigan student or maintain currency by completing a documented annual or biennial proficiency check after enrollment as a University of Michigan student. The cognizant faculty member for pilot training activities is currently Professor Carlos Cesnik. Inquiries should be directed to him.

Similitude and dimensional analysis, basic equations in integral form, continuity, and Navier-Stokes equations.Math is one of the more abstract and difficult sequences in the undergraduate program.
Its goal is to introduce students to the basic structures of modern abstract algebra groups, rings, fields, and modules in a rigorous way.
Emphasis is on concepts and proofs; calculations are used to illustrate the general theory. Exercises tend to be quite challenging. Students must have some previous exposure to rigorous proof-oriented mathematics and be prepared to work hard. The course covers basic definitions and properties of groups, fields, and vector spaces including homomorphisms, isomorphisms, subgroups, and bilinear forms.
Further topics are selected from: Sylow theorems; structure theorem for finitely-generated abelian groups; permutation representation; the symmetric and alternating groups; vector spaces over arbitrary fields; spectral theorem; and linear groups.

Prerequisites: Math, or Credit: 3 Credits Background and Goals: This course is an introduction to the modern qualitative theory of ordinary differential equations with emphasis on geometric techniques and visualization.
Much of the motivation for this approach comes from applications. Examples of applications of differential equations to science and engineering are a significant part of the course. There are relatively few proofs. Content: Geometric representation of solutions, autonomous systems, flows and evolution, linear systems and phase portraits, nonlinear systems, local and global behavior, linearization, stability, conservation laws, periodic orbits. Prerequisites: Math or ; and Math Credit: 3 credits.
A typical student entering this course has substantial experience in using complex mathematical calculus calculations to solve physical or geometrical problems, but is inexperienced at analyzing carefully the content of definitions and the logical flow of ideas which underlie and justify these calculations. Although the topics discussed here are quite distinct from those of calculus, an important goal of the course is to introduce the student to this type of analysis.
Much of the reading, homework exercises, and exams consist of theorems propositions, lemmas, etc. Mathor equivalent, required as background. Content: The initial topics include ones common to every branch of mathematics: sets, functions mappingsrelations, and the common number systems integers, rational numbers, real numbers, complex numbers.
These are then applied to the study of particular types of mathematical structures: groups, rings, and fields. These structures are presented as abstractions from many examples such as the common number systems together with the operations of addition or multiplication, permutations of finite and infinite sets with function composition, sets of motions of geometric figures, and polynomials.
Notions such as generator, subgroup, direct product, isomorphism, and homomorphism are defined and studied. Background and Goals: Many common problems from mathematics and computer science may be solved by applying one or more algorithms — well-defined procedures that accept input data specifying a particular instance of the problem and produce a solution.
Students entering Math typically have encountered some of these problems and their algorithmic solutions in a programming course.What are you learning?

Quick Links. This Course. This course is many things; you may have heard that it is challenging, that it moves fast, or that it used to be much easier. These are all, from one perspective or another, correct. Most aspects of this course have been designed to help you learn.
The way we learn is by working on what is hard for us, so we want you to be in that space—in educational theory, it's called the zone of proximal development. Note: we do not expect you to struggle unproductively on your own. The point of taking a class is that we are all working toward the goal of you learning the material. It is very easy to cheat yourself and your fellow students as you work through your University courses.
