ENGS 154 Aircraft Design

This project-based course immerses students in the clean-sheet design of a remotely-controlled aircraft.  Students design and fabricate their aircraft from scratch, self-identify gaps in knowledge, and seek out information from a variety of sources.  Class periods involve guided discovery of the physical principles of flight, as well as the development and use of mathematical models for design calculations.  Assignments focus on the information and calculations needed to model and design the aircraft.  This course calls upon material across multiple engineering disciplines: systems engineering; aerodynamics; structural analysis; flight stability and control; and propulsion.


ENGS 34 and one of ENS 26, ENGS 31, ENGS 33. Equivalent courses allowed by permission.


Not offered for the period 20F through 21S.
