Myanmar Aerospace Engineering University (MAEU) (Burmese: မြန်မာနိုင်ငံ လေကြောင်းနှင့်အာကာသပညာ တက္ကသိုလ်, pronounced [mjəmà nàiɴŋàɴ lèdʑáuɴ n̥ɪ̰ɴ ʔàkàθa̰ pjɪ̀ɴɲà tɛʔkəθò]) is a specialized public university of aerospace engineering, located in Meiktila, Myanmar. The university offers undergraduate diploma, bachelor's degree and post-graduate diploma programs in several aerospace engineering specializations and technologies.
Prior to MAEU's founding in 2002, Yangon Technological University was the only institution in Myanmar that offered studies in aerospace engineering. YTU began a Bachelor of Engineering degree program in Aeronautical Engineering in 1991, and in 1997 upgraded the program to Aerospace Engineering, ostensibly to "study the space technology and application". In 2002, the military government established a specialized university for aerospace engineering in Meiktila, home of the central command of Myanmar Air Force, possibly with Russian and Chinese technical assistance.
MAEU offers five-year Bachelor of Engineering (BE) degree programs and one-year post-graduate diplomas in various specializations of aerospace engineering. The university also offers two-year undergraduate diploma programs.
