Aerospace Engineering is a branch of engineering that aims to provide economic, scientific and technological services and products from aerospace around the world. Space engineers are engineers in civil and military organizations who design and build manned and unmanned aerospace vehicles to be put into orbit around the world and rockets to put them into orbit, calculate mission and route plans, constantly control them and enable them to fulfill their missions. They also take part in the realization of scientific and technological experiments to be carried out on aerospace vehicles.

The Department of Aerospace Engineering was established in 1983 simultaneously with the Faculty of Aeronautics and Astronautics. 7 Professors, 2 Associate Professors, 2 Dr. Instructor Assistant, 1 Lecturer, 9 Research Assistants. Academic members regularly take part as guest lecturers at the world's leading universities every year. The mission of the department is to produce modern graduates who can successfully take part in production, application and R&D studies in industry and research institutions at national and international level, have a creative mindset and have the ability to learn for self-development, have strong social qualifications, are environmentally friendly and contemporary, at national and international level. To carry out scientific and applied research that will enable the production of knowledge, to publish them and to put them into use. Each year, 72 students are admitted to the department through ÖSYM.
