Validating and restoring defense in depth using attack graphs
Completion of the KU Core is required in all majors. This course does not count towards hours needed for completion of degree program. Prerequisite: AE 507, AE 521, AE 545, AE 551, and AE 571.
Each department recommends certain courses be used to fulfill the KU Core within each major to allow students the greatest flexibility in degree completion. Prerequisite: Varies by topic or with consent of instructor.
Engineering students may minor in many liberal arts areas or in the schools of Business, Journalism and Mass Communications, or Music. Study of the basic principles of operation and systems of internal and external combustion engines with emphasis on airplane reciprocating engines.
To earn a minor, a student must take at least 18 credit hours, 12 of which must be 300-level courses or above. Spacecraft systems engineering, space environment; basic astrodynamics; and the following spacecraft subsystems; attitude determination and control; electrical power; thermal; propulsion; structures and mechanisms; command, telemetry, and data handling; and communications. Fundamentals of Airplane Reciprocating Propulsion Systems. Cycle analysis, propeller theory, propeller selection and performance analysis.
Degree requirements and course descriptions are subject to change.
In most cases, you will use the catalog of the year you entered KU (see your advisor for details).
Our Word of the Year choice serves as a symbol of each year’s most meaningful events and lookup trends.
Some foreign language courses may be applied toward graduation in engineering programs. Study of inlets, compressors, burners, fuels, turbines, jets, methods of analysis, testing, performance; environmental considerations. A foreign language that is similar to the native language is not acceptable. Information on use of foreign language courses is available in each engineering program listing. Lecture and laboratory, study of basic principles of propulsion systems with emphasis on jets and fan systems. Additional objectives are specified in program descriptions. Topics include applications of generalized forces and coordinates, Lagrange equations, and a study of the performance of single and multiple degree of freedom in vibrational systems. Engineering faculty members and graduate students are major users of the facilities and services of many research laboratories and centers across campus and among our research partners at other universities: Engineering and computer science degree programs are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.
