The Structural & Thermal-Fluids Engineering Group provides innovative multidisciplinary engineering solutions through the development of advanced mechanical and aerospace technologies for sea, ground, air, and space-based prototype systems for national security applications. Examples include the development of structural-material systems for spaceborne imaging and laser communication terminals, heat exchangers for high-flux laser and RF solid-state devices, and aerodynamic designs and multifunctional materials for UAV platforms. New technologies and engineering solutions are developed through high-fidelity models and multidisciplinary simulations, environmental and materials characterization testing, and advanced materials to optimize solutions to meet ever increasing performance, size, weight, and environmental challenges.

The group seeks a SUMMER 2018 INTERN student in the Mechanical/Aerospace engineering fields of structural, thermal, and fluids engineering. Duties could include creating and running analysis models (finite element structural and/or thermal models, CFD models, etc), running software analysis codes, analyzing model results and generating new designs based on those results, structural and thermal testing, research and development of new capabilities, and design.

-Currently enrolled in a program of study in engineering (Preferred majors: Mechanical Engineering, Aero/Astro, Aerospace Engineering).
-Completed Mechanics of Materials and Thermal-Fluids or equivalent classes.
-GPA 3.0/4.0 or higher.
