New Aerospace Engineering PhD Program
Beginning fall 2015 the MAE Department will offer an Aerospace Engineering PhD program. 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.
2015 Presidential Doctoral Research Fellowship
In conjunction with the launch of the new Aerospace Engineering PhD program, a Presidential Doctoral Research Fellowship (PDRF) will be awarded to a qualified Aerospace Engineering PhD applicant. The PDRF offers an annual $20,000 (minimum) stipend and full tuition awards/waivers for four years. Please visit MAE’s PDRF webpage for more information.
Departmental Research Assistantships
USU’s Office of Research and Graduate Studies (RGS) will fund Aerospace Engineering Research Assistantships for two new fall 2015 graduate students. These RGS assistantships provide annual stipends of $20,000 (minimum) for four years to PhD students, and $18,000 (minimum) for two years to MS students. To apply, email Dr. David Geller (firstname.lastname@example.org) your unofficial transcripts, GRE scores, resume, and statement of research by March 20, 2015.
Graduate Research Assistantship Openings for Fall 2015
MAE faculty are seeking new graduate students to join their research teams for fall 2015. GRA stipends of approximately $20,000-$30,000/year are available in these research areas:
- CFD – algorithms for aerodynamic applications.
- Experimental fluid mechanics – experimental analysis of fluid systems.
- Experimental solid mechanics – characterize materials for extreme temps.
- Nuclear energy – large scale feasibility of fusion energy.
- Sustainability – systems engineering applied to sustainability.
- Thermal energy – nanoscale material synthesis and characterization.
