AIAA Ground Test Technical Committee Student Engineering Contest
  • 31 March 2001 Abstracts Due
  • 4 May 2001 Final Reports Due
    First Place: $1000 plus up to $1000 travel to the AIAA Ground Test Conference
    Second Place: $500

    The AIAA Ground Testing Technical Committee, working in conjunction with the AIAA Student Programs Office and numerous aerospace companies, is pleased to offer an aerospace engineering contest to graduate and undergraduate students in aerospace, aeronautical, and related engineering academic programs. The purpose of this contest is to provide an opportunity for interested engineering students to broaden their learning and understanding of the role of ground testing in the aerospace discipline. The winners will be invited to attend and participate in an AIAA professional conference.

    The contest is open to all junior and senior undergraduate and all graduate students in an ABET accredited engineering program or an equivalent engineering program offered by a degree granting institution recognized by the AIAA.

    Participants must have continuous enrollment in their program of study throughout the contest period, August 2001 through May 2002. Teams of 1 to 6 qualified students can submit a project. Projects can be an extramural project, part of a design or special projects course, or be part or all of a graduate student thesis. It is essential that the work reported be primarily the work of the student (team) and that the contributions of others outside the team be clearly indicated.

    To enter, submit an abstract, 500 words or less detailing the Problem Description, Project Relevance, Research Approach, and Potential Outcome. Include a cover letter containing the level for each student (junior, senior, M.S, or Ph.D.), mailing address, telephone number and facsimile number, signature of each student (team) member, and signature of the faculty advisor of the project. Also include a signed statement by the AIAA faculty advisor stating that the project meets the requirements set forth herein.
    A team of engineers and scientists from industry, government, and academia will evaluate the abstracts and final reports.

    Final project submission details will be mailed upon receipt of the abstract.

    Mail abstracts to:
