The team will investigate and research:
- Supplier Identification
- Parts and Material Selection
- Optimizing Materials and Fabrication Time Intervals
Students will also learn from the seniors, be exposed to technical writing, modern analytical tools, and help with parametric studies.
This project-based course will form research teams to help the Senior Design SAE Aero team design and fabricate their plane.
This VIP course is expected to grow in size such that it designs and fabricates its own SAE Aero micro class plane in the future, and examine autonomous flight.
This class is intended for sophomores and juniors.
