Myanmar Aerospace Engineering University (MAEU) (Burmese: မြန်မာနိုင်ငံ လေကြောင်းနှင့်အာကာသပညာ တက္ကသိုလ်) is a specialized public university of aerospace engineering, located in Meiktila, Myanmar. The university offers undergraduate diploma, bachelor's degree and post-graduate diploma programs in several aerospace engineering specializations and technologies.[1]

History[edit]

Prior to MAEU's founding in 2002, Yangon Technological University was the only institution in Myanmar that offered studies in aerospace engineering. YTU began a Bachelor of Engineering degree program in Aeronautical Engineering in 1991, and in 1997 upgraded the program to Aerospace Engineering, ostensibly to "study the space technology and application".[3] In 2002, the military government established a specialized university for aerospace engineering in Meiktila, home of the central command of Myanmar Air Force, possibly with Russian and Chinese technical assistance.[4]

Campus[edit]

The university is on a 45.5-hectare (112.5-acre) campus, located on the Yangon-Mandalay highway, next to the Ground Training Base of Myanmar Air Force.[5]

Programs[edit]

MAEU offers six-year Bachelor of Engineering (BE) degree programs and one-year post-graduate diplomas in various specializations of aerospace engineering.[1]
