Undergraduate Research Opportunities

There are many opportunities for Undergraduate students to get involved in research in Aerospace Engineering.

How do I get started?

You may start by visiting the faculty home pages to familiarize yourself with their research interests. Once you have identified topics of interest to you that are compatible with your skill sets, you may contact the professor to set up an appointment. During this meeting, you and the advisor will discuss the scope of work and the credit hours you will earn upon successful completion of the research effort. The advisor will fill out the paperwork granting you permit to register for AE 2699 or AE 4699. The section number is usually linked to the professor's last name.

These credit hours may be used to meet the free elective hours in our program, and also to meet the research requirements of the AE Honors program and the BSAE (Research Option) program.

For qualified students, paid undergraduate research opportunities are available. You will register for AE 2698 or AE 4698 and receive an audit grade. The audit hours do not count towards the 132 credit hours in our program. AE 2698 and AE 2698 may, however, be used to meet the research requirements of our honors program and the BSAE (Research Option) program.
