Learning Across Disciplines

 

Welcome to Aerospace Engineering

Most pioneers learned the "disciplines" of engineering through the hard route of designing devices and systems. We try to capture this spirit by taking the learner through the process of conceptually designing a flight vehicle. In the process, we explore the gateways to the various disciplines of aerospace engineering, each leading to deep resources of knowledge and experience. Prepare for liftoff. First year undergraduates, fresh out of high school, find themselves designing airliners and defining their flight envelopes, inside 12 class periods and a few assignments.
