Senior Mechanical Engineers Win 1st Place at AIAA Conference
At the regional AIAA Student Conference, three mechanical engineering seniors placed 1st in the undergraduate paper competition
What is Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering?
Aerospace and mechanical engineers design and build unique, complex mechanical-optical-electronic (mechoptronic) systems, ranging in scale from the International Space Station to microscale electric generators and pumping systems.
A broad range of engineering science research is critical to developing novel, complex mechoptronic systems. As a consequence, aerospace and mechanical engineers conduct extensive basic and applied research within and crossing their usual disciplinary boundaries, they also synthesize research from many other disciplines.
