SURE participants and Aerospace Engineeringundergrads Ryan Kitson (left) and Jingyu Liu (right) work on a flight test vehicle (FTV) that is part of the X-Hale Project created by Aerospace Professor Carlos Cesnik. The X-Hale project is an experimental vehicle outfitted with strain gauges, accelerometers, and other measurement devices along with a data collection system to compare the behavior predicted by the simulations to real experimental data.Over the summer, as part of SURE, Kitson and Liu have helped manufacture, assemble, and flight test the FTV in preparation for executing flight tests with sponsors at a restricted airspace in Indiana at the end of August.

Summer Undergraduate Research in Engineering (SURE)

Summer Undergraduate Research in Engineering (SURE) offers 10-12 week full-time summer research internships to outstanding undergraduate students who have entered or completed their junior year. These students have the opportunity to conduct research with some of the country’s leading faculty in a wide range of engineering disciplines and to assess their interest in pursuing research at the PhD level.

Vertically Integrated Project (VIP) Research Teams

Through the Multidisciplinary Design Program, undergraduate and graduate students work alongside post-docs, research scientists and faculty members on immersive, engineering-based design projects for credit. All majors are welcome. The program requires a two-term minimum commitment with an opportunity for a summer research stipend. Students are encouraged to continue beyond two terms so that they can become leaders in the lab.
