A team of students from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at DHA Suffa University (DSU) has qualified to participate in the prestigious Design, Build and Fly competition organized annually by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).

From a total of 200 proposals, the top 93 were accepted, with only three teams qualifying from Pakistan. It is important to note that students of DSU have qualified in their first attempt at the most prestigious aerospace engineering competition in the world, while other teams have taken several attempts at securing a place in the competition.

Team DSU’s proposal for the competition consisted of an innovative design of a propeller driven aircraft optimized to carry another smaller propeller aircraft made modular that it can fit in the cargo bay of the former. The team carried out extensive design trade-off studies to come up with ideas that were a cut above the rest of the proposals.

The competition will gather the top aerospace and mechanical schools from the world, including MIT, Cornell, Columbia, Embery-Riddle, Georgia-Tech, UC Berkeley, Maryland, USC, Purdue and John Hopkins.
