  • This course introduces various functional materials, which are the key elements for the smart structure implementation, and several laboratory exercises are provided to solidify understanding of the material behaviors.
  • MAE 565 – Synthetic Design of Aerospace Systems will provide a holistic view for aerospace systems. Lectures will cover 1) fundamentals of systems engineering – the "V" model, 2) discussions on system (of systems) – level attributes of aerospace systems, and 3) real-world implementation of aerospace systems. Guest lectures by experts from research institutes, companies, and the Government will be arranged so that engineering and business insights based on real-world experience can be delivered to students. In parallel to the lectures, students will have opportunities to apply the knowledge obtained in class to aerospace system design cases. MAE 565 is designed as a core course for the Renaissance Ph.D. program in the division of Aerospace Engineering. Undergraduate / graduate students from all majors who are interested in systems engineering, system design, and aerospace systems are encouraged to register in this course. There are no formal prerequisites to this course. Interested students who are not in the Renaissance Ph.D. program are advised to contact the instructor before registration.
  • This course will provide an understanding of communication between science technology field and society. It will contemplate the effect of science and technology including space engineering on society and the effect of public on science and technology field. Then, students can consider the role of engineer with wide latitude besides research and development, and possible contribution to the society in the future.

  • This course covers basic mathematics and signal processing theories for the analysis and design of aero-mechanical IT (information technology) systems and avionics.

    Students will develop proper theoretical background and fundamental basis necessary for advanced courses on IT-systems such as GNSS, satellite communications, control, estimation theory and signal processing for aero and mechanical systems.

  •  This course covers key software languages used in Aerospace Engineering applications, including (mainly) MATLAB, (briefly) C++, and (also briefly) FORTRAN. The class consists of introductory lectures about the technical contents of each subject and intensive lab practice sessions for
    hands-on problem solving. Note that this course emphasizes on problem solving & analysis using those software languages rather than specific details of programming skills.
  • This class includes a brief review of applied aerodynamics and modern approaches in aircraft stability and control. Topics covered include static stability and trim; stability derivatives and characteristic longitudinal and lateral-directional motions; and physical effects of the wing, fuselage, and tail on aircraft motion. Control methods and systems are discussed, with emphasis
    on flight vehicle stabilization by classical and modern control techniques; time and frequency domain analysis of control system performance; and human-pilot models and pilot-in-the-loop controls with applications.
