What Project Should I Choose?

Students are encouraged to consider a variety of factors when indicating their project preference. Some guiding questions to help with your decision include:

  • Which subject area are you particularly interested in (aeronautics vs. astronautics)?
  • Which research area are you particularly interested in (controls, fluids, plasmas, structures)?
  • What skill sets do you possess that will be helpful in the project?
  • What skill sets do you want to develop via the project?
  • Which projects do you feel you could most contribute and learn from?
  • What are your career goals?
