Research

With focuses in new aircraft fuels to reduce exhaust emissions and dependence on petroleum, new materials to make planes lighter and stronger, and new ways to apply human factors and technologies in the sky and on the ground to ensure safer and less expensive flights, the Department of Aviation Technology is working toward a safer, more sustainable future of aviation.
