Caltech offers graduate degrees in Aeronautics and Space Engineering and an undergraduate minor in Aerospace Engineering, all of which are housed in GALCIT. We attract top students from around the world who go on to careers in academia, national laboratories and beyond, and constitute a distinguished body of alumni.

Graduate Degree Options

Undergraduate Minor


The aerospace minor is intended to supplement one of Caltech’s undergraduate degrees and is designed for students who wish to broaden their knowledge beyond their normal major or who may wish to pursue a graduate program involving aerospace or aeronautical engineering. Students completing the aerospace minor requirements will have the phrase “minor in aerospace engineering” added to their transcripts.
