Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Summer Workshop


Come explore Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering this summer through airplanes and a walk-in-wind tunnel! The University of Toledo is combining these two engineering disciplines in a one day, hands-on workshop for current high school students who will graduate in 2014 or 2015. This workshop will provide current professors to better explain these fields and their employment as you participate in exciting lab scenarios. You will 1) test aerodynamics through the use of a fluid flow analysis and 2) study flight principles and integrate them with hands-on airplane design, and 3) experience our mechatronics lab (feedback control systems that link mechanical and electrical systems such as robotics) and 4) explore the use of thermodynamics in mechanical engineering. Come meet current students and hear their testimonies of how Toledo's fully-integrated co-op experience has allowed them the opportunity to work within the aerospace and mechanical industries. Parents are welcome and strongly encouraged to attend. A list of local activities for parents to participate in while the students are experiencing the labs will be emailed after registration.

The agenda for the day is as follows:

9:00 – 9:30 a.m. Check-in
9:30 – 10:15 a.m. Mechanical and Aerospace Overview
