Aviation Design Aviation Design gives students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience and practice with aircraft design, construction, and test flying. Club members work in teams to design a remote-controlled aircraft in order to compete in an AIAA at UCF competition.
This project is encouraged for mechanical and aerospace majors, and is a great learning experience for new members and students from freshmen to seniors. Aviation Design begins each Fall and lasts until the end of Spring.
This project has club members team up in order to build a model rocket. The rocket is designed using basic rocketry equations and computer aided design programs.
This project runs every semester and is open to any majors and years as it is a great learning experience.
As the future draws closer to the present, drones are becoming more prevalent in society. Learning the basics in how to design and build a drone can give you a head-start in the industry. This project focus’ on building racing drones to speed through a race track at 60mph. If you have some CAD experience and a desire to test your skills in this rapidly advancing field, grab your rotors and fly with us.
Do you have a knack for science and engineering? How about solving challenging real-world problems that no one has ever tackled before? Research is all about advancing next generation technologies by performing scientific investigations on the most interesting problems in engineering, and then writing publications so that other have access to our solutions.
UCF is home to top-notch engineering laboratories, and students get to experience graduate-level work first hand when joining one of our projects. Most of the undergraduate researchers go on to pursue their Master’s and PhD out of pure interest in the subject they are studying. If you’ve thought about graduate school, please take a look at what we have to offer and how they can help you achieve your goals.
Members are competing in teams to design and build a remote controlled hovercraft using the materials provided. At the end of a three-to four-week build period, they will compete in a race against the other teams.
This project is done in cooperation with members from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers at UCF, and is planned to take place each semester. This project is open to all majors and years, and is a great learning experience for members.
