Tuskegee University aerospace engineering program ascends with industry

TUSKEGEE, Alabama – Tuskegee University has made significant contributions to the U.S. aerospace industry, and that influence is poised to grow.

Since it started in 1983, the school’s Aerospace Science Engineering Department has produced more than 200 graduates who are working across the nation.

In the last five years, enrollment in the program has been increasing, and a new plane manufacturing project planned for the region is expected to bring even more prominence to this program.

Global aerospace and defense firm Leonardo plans to assemble its T-100 jet trainer at Tuskegee’s Moton Field, if it wins a U.S. Air Force competition to supply the next-generation aircraft.
