Cooperative NASA-Old Dominion Universtiy Graduate Study and Research Program in Aeronautics.
Roberts, A. Sidney, Jr.
This paper describes a program at Old Dominion University (ODU) which engages qualified graduate students in a professional research/design experience while simultaneously providing the academic environment for full-time study. During the two years, students are provided a stipend and tuition expenses under a study grant from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Langley Research Center (NASA/LRC), Hampton, Virginia. Masters students and a few Ph.D. students are selected for the program. During the second year, students engage in actual engineering research and design at NASA/LRC. Sections of the paper describe (1) the ODU interdisciplinary approach to graduate aeronautics education, combining strengths from major engineering disciplines; (2) methods of student selection, study program planning, placement in NASA/LRC branches, student advisement, and research supervision; (3) degree production and current status of program; and (4) reception of the program by NASA management and engineers, the engineering faculty, and the students in the program. Evidence presented indicates that mutual benefits from the program accrue for the students, the engineering school, and the cooperating agency. (LS)
