KU Aerospace Engineering Students Win International Design Competition!

Congratulations to the KU Aerospace Engineering team who won the 6th annual Power Electronics Systems and Applications Conference competition for their amphibious aircraft design called the BATWinG! The goal of the BATWinG is to improve bay area transportation by decreasing travel times and costs with little to no impact on the environment. To support their design, the team utilized DARcorporation's Advanced Aircraft Analysis software. Rock Chalk Jayhawk! Read the full story from the Lawrence Journal-World (Kansas).
