Michigan Tech SAE Aero Design® Team
Competes in East and West


The 'Mighty Mutts'

In the 2005 SAE Aero East National Student Competition, our student team placed 11th out of 30 teams. Faculty advisor: Dr. Donna J. Michalek.

The Aero Design® Competition challenges engineering students to conceive, design, fabricate, and test a radio controlled aircraft that can take off and land while carrying the maximum cargo. This gives students the opportunity to apply the knowledge learned in the classroom on a practical problem.

In 2004 the Michigan Tech Aero Design Team placed 9th overall in the East competion and 10th overall in the West where they lifted 20.95 lbs, a new record for the team.

They received the award for the best design report in the West and their total design score for report, plans, payload prediction, and presentation was 3rd overall.
