Aerospace Engineering (AERSP)

AERSP 401B Spacecraft Design--Detailed (2) Detailed design of the constituent subsystems and related support systems for a spacecraft.

AERSP 401B Spacecraft Design -- Detailed (2)

AERSP 401B is the second of a two-semester sequence of senior capstone design courses. In this course, students work in teams, continuing the design process begun in AERSP 401A. This process is inherently multidisciplinary, requiring the use of engineering practices in such subjects as structures, dynamics, electrical and thermal systems, propulsion, controls, and information systems. In addition to the technical design content, this course seeks to enhance students' skills in verbal and written communications, and the team approach to design, which is widely used in industry and government. Classes (115 minutes each, twice weekly) include lecture and time for team meetings.
