MIT AeroAstro prepares engineers for success and leadership in the conception, design, implementation, and operation of aerospace and related engineering systems. We achieve this through our commitment to: educational excellence; creation, development, and application of technologies critical to aerospace vehicle and information engineering; and to the architecture and engineering of complex high-performance systems.

  Our goals are: educate tomorrow’s leaders through innovative educational programs and pedagogies that have as their context the conception, design, implementation, and operation of systems; and processes; create research opportunities that generate inventions, technologies, and solutions to aerospace problems; and provide leadership to MIT and the aerospace community.
