Call for Applications starting Fall 2024: Modeling and Environmental Testing of Structures


Starting Fall 2024


Selected students will be working on projects related to structural dynamics, nonlinear dynamics, vibration, flight testing and characterization, etc. This includes fundamental research and experiments, such as:

  • Design, acquire, and deploy a shaker/fixture/component system
  • Manufacture various dynamical systems in collaboration with Aggie Innovation Space
  • Excite assembly to estimate the response of the actual component operating in the actual service environment
  • Perform modeling, simulation and other aspects of environmental testing
  • Publish research in conference proceedings and journals

Possible Future Opportunities

Completed participation will provide a strong skill set in experimental and theoretical structural dynamics research and manufacturing of dynamical systems.

Interested in pursuing graduate study, working at a national lab, or working in industry?

  • This program is an excellent opportunity to accomplish those interests!
  • Students who find employment at a national laboratory or companies, such as LANL, Sandia National Laboratories, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, etc.


  • ME, AE, or MAE Major
  • BS GPA of 3.2 or greater is preferred
  • US Citizen
  • Graduate (MS or PhD) Student
