  • ASEN 1022 - Materials Science for Aerospace Engineers
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2023 / Summer 2023
    Covers prerequisite chemistry topics for materials science and introduces material types, properties and behavior for aerospace engineers. Topics include review of chemistry; atomic bonding; crystals; diffusion; mechanical/thermal properties; phase diagrams; heat treatment; failure mechanisms; materials selection; and a general introduction to modern materials for aerospace engineering applications including composites and materials with engineered properties. Lab project or tensile testing is included.
  • ASEN 2012 - Experimental and Computational Methods in Aerospace Engineering Sciences
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2022 / Fall 2023 / Spring 2024
    Introduces statistical, experimental, and computational methods used in aerospace engineering sciences. Usage of MatLab is extensive.
  • ASEN 2702 - Introduction to Thermodynamics and Aerodynamics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2024
    Introduces the fundamental principles and concepts of thermodynamics and aerodynamics. Topics include the first law of thermodynamics, properties of pure substances, control volume analysis, one-dimensional incompressible and compressible flows, two-dimensional lift and drag, and introduction to viscous flows.
  • ASEN 3113 - Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2023
    Focuses on the applications of the first and second laws of thermodynamics to control volumes and teaches the fundamental concepts of different modes of energy and heat transfer. Learn to use these concepts in gas dynamics, high-speed vehicle spacecraft design, environmental systems, and energy analysis.
  • ASEN 3802 - Aerospace Sciences Lab II
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2023 / Spring 2024
    Provides an intermediate laboratory experience in aerospace sciences, with a focus on aerodynamics, structural mechanics, thermodynamics, and heat transfer. Emphasizes design and analysis of experiments, processing and analysis of experimental data, and model validation using experimental data.
  • GEEN 1400 - Engineering Projects
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2022
    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).
