Program Overview


This summer program aims at providing key concepts in design, modeling and control of micro aerial vehicles (MAVs) covering both theoretical and experimental aspects. In this regard, specific drone configurations will be studied. Detailed simulations including realistic aerodynamic effects will be realized using CFD tools (STAR ccm+) to assess theses forces. Wind tunnel tests will also be carried out to firstly, achieve a real observation of the drone dynamics, and then to validate the CFD simulations results.

** Only juniors and above in engineering (or related fields) can apply. Students from non-engineering majors can contact Prof. Enikov, (enikov@email.arizona.edu) Aerospace and Mech. Engineering Department to determine prerequisites and eligibility.
