Hypersonics (Z165)

Graduate Certificate Program
College: Engineering


This certificate will provide participants with a deep understanding of the key principles relevant to the flight of high-speed vehicles and projectiles in the atmosphere. Students will be introduced to crucial concepts in areas such as hypersonic aerodynamics, high-speed airbreathing propulsion, high-temperature structures and materials, and high-speed guidance, navigation & control. More specialized courses will also be offered in important areas such as high-temperature gas dynamics, transition, turbulence, experimental and computational methods, and vehicle design. The certificate will prepare students for a career in hypersonics-related fields in both the commercial and defense sectors. 


Students in this program pay a special tuition rate, which does not differ between residents and non-residents of Maryland. This rate is not fully covered by graduate assistantships, fellowships or the tuition remission. Additional graduate student fees are charged. Tuition and fees are subject to change.
