GE Aviation/WSU/Kansas Department of Commerce
Applied Propulsion Track
General Electric (GE) Aviation, the Aerospace Engineering (AE) department, and the Kansas Department of Commerce (KDC) are passionate about increasing the availability of well-prepared engineers.
As a result, and with Kansas Department of Commerce (KDC) help, WSU is creating an Applied Propulsion Track within the current aerospace engineering BS degree program. Graduates who complete the track will be uniquely prepared to work in the turbojet engine industry.
Indeed, GE Aviation in Winfield, KS, is very interested in recruiting WSU Applied Propulsion Track students to participate in internship and full-time employment opportunities.
This program is a great way to prepare for a fantastic career!
The Applied Propulsion Track fits within the existing AE BS degree program. Participants will complete the following required and elective courses to fulfill track requirements:
- AE 502 - Aerospace Propulsion I
- AE 742 - Applied Jet Propulsion I (a new course, Fall 2018)
- AE 743 - Applied Jet Propulsion II (a new course, Spring 2019)
- Elective – A relevant course taken in Industrial, Manufacturing, and Systems Engineering or Maintenance and Reliability or Nondestructive Testing (WSU Tech campus), as approved by Dr. Myose
WSU is also planning to work closely with area community colleges to establish 2+2 or 2+3 schedules that feed into the WSU AE BS degree program and the Applied Propulsion Track. Watch this page for updates and additional information.
The WSU Applied Propulsion Track is a great way to secure unique career opportunities!
