Multidisciplinary design and analysis (MDA) has become the normal mode of operation within most aerospace engineering companies over the past decade, but universities have not changed their education of engineering students to follow this trend in industry. Under the auspices of NASA, a multidisciplinary team of faculty, student, and industry partners evaluated the aeronautical engineering curriculum at Cal Poly and found a variety of ways the curriculum could introduce MDA themes without… CONTINUE READING
