Propulsion Design Laboratory

A dedicated research laboratory for the Capstone Design Course for the Propulsion Track in Aerospace Engineering, the Propulsion Design Laboratory contains a 3D printer, conference area, and instructional area, supplemented by dedicated computers with propulsion-focused software.

The overall aim of the space and the work therein is to enhance the research skills of undergraduates in line with the University’s IGNITE initiative, assist in publication for major propulsion conferences, and prepare students interested in advanced degrees (MS and/or PhD). In addition to supporting the capstone course, the lab serves the engine design competition teams that compete in the AIAA/ASME annual undergraduate engine design competition. A dedicated graduate student monitors the lab during operating hours.
