Distance Learning

MAE Distance Learning Programs

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) offers a wide range of distance learning (DL) opportunities, including Master’s degrees, certificates and individual courses. This page will describe the three (3) special programs we have created to leverage the U.S. Navy’s three most advanced technical education and training schools,  

  • Bettis Engineering Reactor School (BRES)
  • Navy Nuclear Power School (NNPS)
  • Navy Test Pilot School (N-TPS)  

If you are a graduate of one of these schools then MAE has a custom tailored master’s degree program that maximally utilizes your experience in the school you attended, and creates a program for completing an advanced degree in a minimum time. 
MAE also offers degree programs, certificates, and individual courses to students who are not graduates of one of these schools. If you are in any branch of uniformed service (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, NOAA, etc.), are a DoD Civilian, or are an employee of a DoD Contractor (Lockheed-Martin, Boeing, General Dynamics, Raytheon, etc.) you are eligible to attend NPS or to enroll in one of our DL Programs.
