    Course Highlights

    This course features materials from Unified Engineering which comprise more than four times the volume of a typical one-semester MIT course. The seven disciplines covered in this site, along with the course's organization and pedagogy, are explained in the detailed syllabus. This course also features videos, including a course introduction, lecture samples, and a documentary of the Spring semester project. Samples of active learning techniques employed by the course faculty are also included.

    Course Description

    The basic objective of Unified Engineering is to give a solid understanding of the fundamental disciplines of aerospace engineering, as well as their interrelationships and applications. These disciplines are Materials and Structures (M); Computers and Programming (C); Fluid Mechanics (F); Thermodynamics (T); Propulsion (P); and Signals and Systems (S). In choosing to teach these subjects in a unified manner, the instructors seek to explain the common intellectual threads in these disciplines, as well as their combined application to solve engineering Systems Problems (SP). Throughout the year, the instructors emphasize the connections among the disciplines.
