MTSU Aerospace Chair Wayne Dornan and University President Sidney A. McPhee, joined UT Space Institute interim associate vice president and chief administrator Angie Bukley to announce the plan that will need final approval from the Tennessee Board of Regents.

Under the proposed partnership, aerospace majors will spend 3½ years at MTSU. In their last semester, they will take classes at the UTSI campus near Tullahoma. These classes will go toward their undergraduate degree while at the same time count as prerequisite classes for the M.S. at UTSI.
