About Auburn

With 12 colleges and schools and nationally ranked programs in architecture, business, engineering, pharmacy, and veterinary medicine, organizations recruiting our graduates say that Auburn University students have an edge with their level of professionalism, communication skills, and preparation.

Auburn University is situated in the small city of Auburn, Alabama, in the Southeastern United States. Auburn is not only a great place to live, it was also ranked 18th in Forbes' list of "The Best Small Places for Business and Careers" and the fourth most educated city in the U.S. (New Geography, 2015)

Auburn Spirit

All universities have traditions. At Auburn, our soaring spirit is symbolized by an eagle, and a roaring attitude represented by a tiger. You just can't help getting caught up in it all. Start practicing the Auburn cheer 'War Eagle!'

Small Town, Big Experience

Auburn is a small city, with a mild climate and big opportunities. Auburn’s downtown area, with restaurants and shops, is within easy walking distance of the campus. In a ten-minute drive, you can visit the 16-screen movie theater, shopping mall, and 90 holes of golf. A few miles from campus, Chewacla State Park has 696 acres of hiking and camping.

Around Auburn

Just 1.5 hours away you’ll find the largest city in the Southeast, Atlanta, home to the nation’s busiest airport (so it’s easy to fly home when you need to) and more than a dozen Fortune 500 companies. Within Alabama, you can relax on the beaches of the Gulf coast or check out the restaurants, shops, and nightlife in Birmingham.

On Campus

Year-round, the stunning Auburn campus hosts concerts, cultural and sporting events, international festivals, and art exhibits, to name a few. Amid classes and studying, you might join some student organizations, or an intramural sports team. Some days you’ll just want to stroll around campus with friends, picnic in the arboretum, or gather your books for an outdoor study session.

Aerospace Engineering

Campus Full time 4 years May 2018 USA Auburn

The objectives of the aerospace engineering program are: (1) to help students develop written and oral communication skills and to acquire a knowledge of history, literature and society; (2) to provide students a solid foundation in and a sound working knowledge of basic engineering principles; (3) to help students obtain an understanding of the engineering principles and skills specifically needed in the aeronautical and astronautical disciplines; and (4) to assist and encourage each student to develop an enhanced ability to learn and think creatively. [+]

Aerospace engineers are concerned with the application of scientific principles and engineering concepts and practices to design, build, test and operate aerospace systems. The curriculum is intended to provide students with a broad understanding of fundamental scientific and technological principles, and to develop the ability to use these principles in developing solutions to engineering problems. The objectives of the aerospace engineering program are: (1) to help students develop written and oral communication skills and to acquire a knowledge of history, literature and society; (2) to provide students a solid foundation in and a sound working knowledge of basic engineering principles; (3) to help students obtain an understanding of the engineering principles and skills specifically needed in the aeronautical and astronautical disciplines; and (4) to assist and encourage each student to develop an enhanced ability to learn and think creatively. Required courses cover aeronautical and astronautical subjects. Students may also choose to emphasize either aeronautical or astronautical systems. Technical electives allow concentration in such areas as aerodynamics, astronautics, flight dynamics and control, propulsion, structures, and structural dynamics. The design of aerospace components and systems is considered to be an integral part of the education of aerospace engineers. Hence, design is included throughout the curriculum, beginning with a sophomore course in aerospace fundamentals and culminating in the senior design course sequence. Students are required to apply their theoretical knowledge of aerodynamics, dynamics, structures and propulsion to solve open-ended problems and to produce portions of preliminary designs. [-]

Architecture

Campus Full time 5 years May 2018 USA Auburn

The bachelor of architecture degree is awarded upon the completion of the five-year curriculum. Qualified students may elect to pursue concurrently a second bachelor of interior architecture degree. [+]

The bachelor of architecture degree is awarded upon the completion of the five-year curriculum. Qualified students may elect to pursue concurrently a second bachelor of interior architecture degree. In the United States, most state registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a pre-requisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit U.S. professional degree programs in architecture, recognizes three types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture, the Master of Architecture, and the Doctor of Architecture. A program may be granted a six, three or two-year term of accreditation, depending on its degree of conformance with established educational standards. Doctor of Architecture and Master of Architecture degree programs may consist of a pre-professional undergraduate degree and a professional graduate degree, that when earned sequentially, constitute an accredited professional education. However, the pre- professional degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree. Auburn's next accreditation visit for the architecture program is in 2017. Auburn University, School of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape Architecture offers the following NAAB-accredited degree program: Bachelor of Architecture (159 credits). The four-year pre-professional Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design is not a professionally accredited degree. Auburn University is a member of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture. Students are encouraged to work at an architect’s office, on a construction site or in another approved professional endeavor prior to their fourth year. The bachelor of interior architecture degree program offers a holistic approach to... [-]
