MECH 3620 Aircraft Design - 3 Credits​
Prerequisites: MECH 1907 AND MECH 3640 AND MECH 3650
Corequisites: MECH 3660 AND MECH 3670

Students will work in teams to develop a conceptual design for a complete flight vehicle, using knowledge and skills acquired in the Aerospace Engineering Major curriculum. Specific considerations will include market conditions, mission requirements, aircraft size and layout, airfoil/wing geometry, aerodynamics, engine selection, airframe-engine integration, fuselage design, electrical and hydraulic systems, landing gear arrangement, flight stability and control, structures and materials, avionics and navigation systems, human factors, safety, manufacturing processes, and cost analysis. The teams will present their proposed designs via oral presentations and written reports.
