Aerospace engineering at U-M tackles the three fundamental areas that drive advances in aircraft and spacecraft: gas dynamics, dynamics and controls and structures and materials. Some of our projects relate to space systems, specifically electric propulsion and small satellites. For more information on how these findings improve vehicles and other technologies, learn about our research impact.
The movement of air is crucial to both aerodynamic vehicles and efficient engines.
Computer-aided and autonomous flight requires robust sensing and information processing systems.
Stronger, lighter materials will make aircraft safer and more fuel efficient.
Electric propulsion systems and small satellites for observing Earth and elsewhere in the solar system.
The term hypersonic implies that there are unique physical phenomena that are important for these vehicles that do not occur at lower speed.
