In the UK, Aerospace (or aeronautical) engineering can be studied at the B.Eng., M.Eng., MSc. and Ph.D. levels at a number of universities. The first institution in the UK to teach in this field was Queen Mary, University of London,[11] which, with the dissolution of the University of Paris (whose chair was founded at around the same time[12]), maintains the longest continuous experience of doing so in the world. The Times '​ top 10 universities are University of Cambridge, University of Surrey, University of Bristol, University of Southampton, Queens University Belfast, University of Sheffield, University of Bath, Imperial College London, Loughborough University and University of Nottingham for 2010.[13] The Department of Aeronautics at Imperial College London is noted for providing engineers for the Formula One industry,[14] an industry that uses aerospace technology. Cranfield University is also known to produce the largest number of postgraduates in the UK with an aerospace engineering related degree.[15]

United States[edit]

The programs of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Rutgers University, and University of Southern California are examples of American schools.[16] In 2009, U.S. News & World Report ranked the undergraduate aerospace engineering programs at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Georgia Institute of Technology, and the University of Michigan as the top three best programs at doctorate granting universities in the United States. The other programs in the top ten were Purdue University, California Institute of Technology, University of Maryland, University of Illinois, Stanford University, University of Texas at Austin, and Virginia Tech in that order.[17]

In 2014, the U.S. News & World Report rankings for graduate programs were: (1) Massachusetts Institute of Technology, (2) California Institute of Technology,( 2) Stanford University, (4) University of Michigan, (5) Georgia Institute of Technology, (5) Purdue University, (7) University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, (8) University of Texas at Austin, (9) University of Colorado at Boulder, (9) Princeton University, (9) Cornell University, where parenthesis indicate the ranking and the same number indicates a tie in scores.[18] The magazine also rates Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the United States Air Force Academy, and the United States Naval Academy as the premier aerospace engineering programs at universities that do not grant doctorate degrees.[19] University of Kansas School of Engineering has earned more first and second place AIAA awards than any other academic institution in the world in the 42-year history of the competition.[20] Wichita State University is renowned for its Aerospace Engineering program and also has the third highest research budget for Aerospace Engineering in the United States.[21][22]

Aerospace (or aeronautical) engineering can be studied at the advanced diploma, bachelor's, master's, and Ph.D. levels in aerospace engineering departments at many U.S. universities, and in mechanical engineering departments at others. A few departments offer degrees in space-focused astronautical engineering. U.S. News & World Report ranks the aerospace engineering programs at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, California Institute of Technology (Caltech), and the Stanford University within the top three best programs for doctorate granting universities. However, other top programs within the ten best in the United States include those of University of Michigan, Texas A&M University, the University of Texas at Austin, Purdue University, Princeton University and the University of Illinois.[23] The magazine also rates Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and United States Air Force Academy as the premier aerospace engineering programs at universities that do not grant doctorate degrees.[24]
