ASEN 2002 - Aerospace 2: Introduction to Thermodynamics and Aerodynamics
Fall 2018 / Fall 2019 / Fall 2020 / Fall 2021
Introduces the fundamental principles and concepts of thermodynamics and fluid dynamic systems. Emphasizes the synthesis of basic science (physics), mathematics and experimental methods that form the basis for quantitative and qualitative analyses of general aerospace technology systems. Proficiency in Matlab required.
ASEN 2003 - Aerospace 3: Introduction to Dynamics and Systems
Spring 2019 / Spring 2020 / Spring 2021 / Spring 2022
Introduces the principles of particle and planar rigid body dynamics, systems, and controls. Topics include kinematics, kinetics, momentum and energy methods, system modeling, and simple feedback control. Class includes experimental and design laboratory exercises for aerospace applications of dynamic principles.
ASEN 2802 - Aerospace Sciences Lab I
Provides an introductory laboratory experience in aerospace sciences, with a focus on statics, structural mechanics, thermodynamics, and aerodynamics. Emphasizes model-based design, experimental data collection, and interpretation of experimental data.
GEEN 1400 - Engineering Projects
First-year students solve real engineering design problems in interdisciplinary teams. Design projects vary by section. Curriculum focuses on iterative design process, teamwork and team dynamics, supporting design with testing and analysis, and technical writing. Completed projects are exhibited at an end-of-semester design expo. Students responsible for contributing towards their design project budget and poster costs, and purchasing safety glasses (approximately $75).
