A fully equipped workspace is made available to Aerospace Engineering undergraduate students to work on their design projects as a part of their two-semester senior design sequence.
Students in the aeronautics track occupy this lab during fall preliminary design and spring detail design of their last full year as undergraduates in the program.
The laboratory features two computer-aided design and drafting spaces with twenty-four high-powered workstations running industry-standard analysis and design programs, including CATIA, NASTRAN, and a variety of supporting ERAU network applications.
The space and the tools enable hands-on experience in design of aircraft design, including the ancillary skills of reporting, management, financial analysis, technical specification, peer review, and prototype fabrication.
Through this space, students are given the tools and guidance to enable them to complete their capstone design course by building components to meet the specifications of industry representatives from companies, such as Boeing and Gulfstream.
