Spacecraft Design Symposium
The Cal Poly Astronautics concentration senior class has been developing a concept to better understand interstellar and extreme long period objects once one of those objects is detected. The class will hold the Spacecraft Design Annual Symposium in the format of a simulated PDR over two afternoons on June 2nd and June 4th 2021.

Aircraft Design Symposium
The Cal Poly Aeronautics concentration senior class has proposed two designs this year: 1) design a cargo re-supply Remotely-Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) that will augment or replace existing systems—not necessarily aircraft—to deliver high-value and time-critical supplies to the South Pole research station during the local winter season and 2) design a business jet that will compete with existing and other near term business jets for corporate executive transportation and similar high-value, time critical transportation uses. The class will hold the Aircraft Design Annual Symposium on June 4th 2021.

A Hands-On Program

Our program focuses on Fundamental Knowledge and Integrated System Design in Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Learn by Doing

Our programs are continually at the forefront of Hands On and Learn-by-Doing education. The purpose of the program was to teach students about the maintenance and repair of aircraft and their engines. Using a laboratory equipped with airframes, engines, propeller balancing equipment, and engine test stands, airplanes were dismantled, overhauled, and rebuilt.
