Online BS in Aeronautical Engineering

In summary, it seems that it is difficult to find a school that offers a BS in Aeronautical Engineering, as most programs only offer a MS. This is likely due to the challenges of teaching engineering online and the importance of hands-on experience and collaboration with peers. Some MS programs do offer the option of completing coursework online, but a full BS in engineering would not be feasible to offer in an online format.

Does anyone know of a school that offers a BS in Aeronautical Engineering? So far all I can find are MS offered online. I may go for a MS eventually, but for now I am just looking for a BS.

Thanks!

None exist that I know of, and for good reason. A full engineering degree doesn't lend itself well to being taught online. You won't get labs or exposure to your peers with whom most engineers do a lot of work.

I can find plenty of places that offer a MS, so I thought I could find one that offers a BS degree.

I think the reason is the importance of the fundamentals.

If you are going for a MS, then you have already addressed them.

Some varieties of MS degrees require only coursework and generally are only like 8 courses or something like that. These graduate-level courses don't have lab or discussion components, so there isn't a whole lot you are losing online, so programs offer it. It would be shady to offer an online BS in engineering of any sort because of all the labs and discussion sections you would miss.
