The basic ideas, and approaches of aerospace engineering, are highlighted by way of lectures on aeronautics, astronautics, and design. Lively studying aerospace modules make use of data expertise. Scholar groups are immersed in a hands-on, lighter-than-air (LTA) car design venture, the place they design, construct, and fly radio-controlled LTA autos. The connections between principle and apply are realized within the design workouts. Required design critiques precede the LTA race competitors. The efficiency, weight, and principal traits of the LTA autos are estimated and illustrated utilizing physics, arithmetic, and chemistry recognized to freshmen, the emphasis being on the applying of this information to aerospace engineering and design fairly than on publicity to new science and arithmetic.
