Do you want to pursue an aerospace career? Are you interested in cutting-edge aerospace technologies? Are you considering becoming an engineer, but you’re unsure of your aptitude, or even what engineers do? If that sounds like you, then you should attend “E Tech.”
At Auburn University you’ll be introduced to several engineering disciplines by completing hands-on projects and learning from professors and NASA or Air Force researchers.
Aerospace & Fiber Engineering:
Investigate what's unique about composite materials and then design and construct a carbon-fiber airfoil that you'll test in a smoke tunnel.
Learn how design affects engineering applications by participating in labs that test your balance, dexterity, strength, and other human factors.
Explore BAJA cars and an award-winning solar-powered house.
Check out electron microscopes and learn how engineers decide which materials to use for aerospace applications.
