Research

research overview

  • Dr. Wingate's research lies in the engineering education realm. Specifically, her research interests include understanding student progression through engineering curricula, increasing retention of engineering students from under-represented groups and socio-economic backgrounds, and novel teaching techniques for material science, statics, mechanics, and design. She has expertise in material selection and qualification in aerospace applications, vascular tissue engineering, experimental design and machine/component design.

courses taught

  • ASEN 2001 - Aerospace 1: Introduction to Statics, Structures, and Materials
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019
    Introduces models and analytical/numerical methods for statics and structural analysis. Topics include force/moment equilibrium, truss analysis, beam theory, stress/strain, failure criteria, and structural design. Matlab proficiency required. Offered fall only.
  • ASEN 5018 - Graduate Projects I
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Spring 2019
    Exposes MS and PhD students to project management and systems engineering disciplines while working a complex aerospace engineering project as part of a project team. The project team may perform some or all of the following project activities during this first semester of the two-semester course sequence: requirements, definition, design and design review, build, test, and verification. Recommended prerequisite: ASEN 4138 or ASEN 5148 or ASEN 5158 or instructor consent required.
  • ASEN 6028 - Graduate Projects II
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Spring 2019
    Exposes MS and PhD students to leadership positions in project management and systems engineering while working a complex aerospace engineering project as part of a project team. The project team may perform some or all of the following project activities during this second semester of the two-semester course sequence: requirements definition, design and design review, build, test, and verification. Recommended prerequisite: ASEN 4138 or ASEN 5148 or ASEN 5018 or ASEN 5158 or instructor consent required.
  • GEEN 1400 - Engineering Projects
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    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).
