This course is part of the elective curriculum for the masters and doctorate degree programs.

Instructor: Dr. Emaid Retha

This course lectures related to fundamental principles of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) propulsion design. It is intended as a first course that provides in-depth understanding of state-of-the-art propulsion issues for UAVs, including propulsion options, cycle analysis, and principles of operation, systems, components, and performance and efficiency calculations. Also the Theories of aero-engines and their related background in aerodynamics, thermodynamics and stress analysis are presented. System as well as component engineering aspects of engine aerothermo-mechanical design is examined. Unmanned Aircraft Systems alternative power will be discussed

Prerequisites: Intermediate college calculus course (200-level or higher)
