16.810 8 A 2001 survey of undergraduate students (Aero/Astro) – in conjunction with new Dept. head search - There is a perceived lack of understanding and training in modern design methods using state-of-the-art CAD/CAE/CAM technology and design optimization. - Individual students have suggested the addition of a short and intense course of rapid prototyping, combined with design optimization. Needs – from students
