Space vehicle design introduces all elements of the spacecraft design process from proposal preparation through detailed specification and prototyping. Students are organized into design teams associated with different subsystems and tasks, to develop a solution to a space vehicle system’s problem of practical interest, by drawing on their background in aerospace engineering science, machine design, and manufacturing methods. Topics include problem definition and requirement analysis, design specifications, concept development, reliability, consideration of alternative solutions, materials considerations, engineering prototyping, mission analysis, and presentation skills. This is a communication-intensive course. 

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Seniors only.

When Offered: Fall term annually.
