EAP Summer University Grant Competition

By: Stephanie Eftimiades

Join aerospace professionals around the globe in creatively solving problems in the Summer 2017 edition of the EAP University Grant Competition. Full-time undergraduate and graduate students are invited to demonstrate their problem solving and creative skills using AGI software. Applicants will use STK and select modules to develop a solution for a real-world problem of their design in one of three categories:

  1. Entrants use STK to create and deliver problem solutions with a space-mission focus. This includes but is not limited to: space situational awareness, space exploration and space mission design and operations. Example: NASA Journey to Mars 2033
  2. Entrants use STK to create and deliver problem solutions focused on issues in the land, air and sea domains. This can include but is not limited to UAV and aircraft missions; situational awareness; electronic systems; and battlespace management and operations. Example: NASA UAS in the NAS
  3. Entrants use their creativity to use STK to solve a unique problem set. Entrants are encouraged to integrate STK with additional tools to demonstrate the analytical value of integrated multiple tools to reach an analytical solution.

Why Enter?

Funding! Winners in each of three categories will receive a $500 grant award and second-place winners will receive $200
Resume building! All accepted entrants will need to utilize skills also required to pass the STK Master’s Certification test. Employers aggressively seek STK certified engineers.
Exposure! Winners will receive an invitation to present their AGI solution to AGI users and potential future colleagues at an AGI Webinar.
