Senior Computational Design Lab (SCuD Lab)

The Senior Computational Design (SCUD) Laboratory serves students in the capstone design sequences of both the Aerospace Engineering program (ENG AM 409, Flight Vehicle Design I, and ENG AM 410, Flight Vehicle Design II) and in the Mechanical Engineering program (ENG AM 413, Machine Design I, and ENG AM 414, Machine Design II). The role of the SCUD Lab is to provide our seniors with sufficient computer power and software to be able to use modern engineering computational tools and methods in their design projects. Currently, the laboratory has 15 HP Z400 Desktops and a printer.
