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