AE Leads College to Top 10 Ranking
The Aerospace Engineering Department was recently ranked 8th overall among
US universities, and 5th among publics for its outstanding and first rate graduate research programs. The department moved up 3 spots from 11th last year. This improvement in the ranking is strongly supported by the fact that the department has won four major large research grants:
- NASA Constellation University Institute Project
- Army CTA Center on "Microsystems Mechanics"
- AFOSR MURI on "Rotorcraft Brownout"
- NASA Institute for Dextrous Robotics
"This is a significant recognition of the research conducted by our
outstanding faculty and graduate students"
says Darryll Pines, professor and chair of the AE department.
