Aircraft Design Laboratory
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 space and 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.
In this lab, students are also given the 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.
- 2 Computer-aided design and drafting spaces
- 24 High-powered workstations running industry-standard analysis and design programs, including CATIA, NASTRAN, and a variety of supporting ERAU network applications
