HKUST Student Team Joins Aircraft Design Competition in US
The HKUST Aeronautics Interest Group Model Team gained valuable experience at the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Student Design/Build/Fly Competition 2013/14, held in Kansas, US, in mid-April.
The 14-member team was among 80 teams from around the world to participate in the contest, which provided a real-world aircraft design experience for engineering students, enabling them to test out their analytical, organizational, and problem-solving skills.
Thanks go to DHL Express for providing logistics consultation and sponsoring the air express transportation of HKUST’s aircraft. DHL Express has been the logistics partner for the School of Engineering for four years, offering shipment sponsorship to enable student-built machines to reach competition destinations.
