Academic Common Market

UT is a member of the Academic Common Market, which enables out-of-state students to pursue college degrees at discounted, in-state tuition rates. The Tickle College of Engineering offers several programs approved to participate in the program.

Information updated August 2018. View and search the complete list of ACM programs.  


Aerospace Engineering

Uses the basic sciences and mathematics to develop a foundation for the design, development, production, testing, and applied research associated with aerospace vehicles. These vehicles include aircraft, spacecraft, and missiles. Auxiliary and propulsion systems are also an integral part of this major and include guidance, control, environmental, ramjet, rocket, turbo-jet, and piston engine systems. Emphasis in the senior year is directed toward these topics, and the program culminates in a major aerospace design project.

Eligible States: Arkansas, Delaware, Kentucky, and Louisiana
