Dr. Kohei Fujimoto to join MAE Department Fall 2015

MAE is pleased to announce Dr. Kohei Fujimoto will be joining the department in August as an assistant professor. 

Dr. Fujimoto received his PhD in Aerospace Engineering Sciences from the University of Colorado-Boulder in 2013. He graduated from the University of Michigan with his B.S.E. in Aerospace Engineering in 2009. Between 2013 and 2015, he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University.  Kohei's research interests are in astrodynamics and orbit determination for data-sparse systems, with a focus on analytical methods relevant to space situational awareness (SSA), uncertainty quantification, and autonomous navigation.  His work has been selected for a best paper award, cited in a National Research Council report, and documented as a NASA technical report.

New Aerospace Engineering PhD Program

The MAE Department will begin offering an Aerospace Engineering PhD program fall 2015. Coursework and research will provide students with in-depth studies in areas such as astrodynamics, guidance and navigation, dynamics and control, propulsion, and fluids. Program requirements can be found on MAE’s Graduate Degree Programs webpage.
