''A few tips . . .''
1) Use 2 references from your undergraduate institution since you just hit up those professors for grad school references. Not only do they obviously
have a lot of good things to say about you, they already have something they can tweak and reuse. Plus it gives you a nice diversity on your application.
Then you can just ask a GALCIT prof that you may be doing well in his/her class or are targeting for potential research for the other reference- this is a
good opportunity to get to know a certain GALCIT professor more closely.

2) If possible, simply "tweak" your graduate school application essay on research ideas for these scholarship applications- even if it's not what you end up
pursuing. These programs don't expect you to foresee the next 4 years, they just want to make sure you can think analytically and can generate a realistic
research plan. It could possibly save you time and headache to just use something you've already done.

Welcome to the page for Ae 150! This is a weekly seminar that meets on Mondays at 1:00 PM in Lees-Kubota in Guggenheim. Speakers from industry and government sponsored research labs are invited to discuss with first year Aeronautics and Aerospace Engineering students relevant topics regarding the current challenges facing the Aerospace community today. These technical challenges are often presented in the broader context of commercial efforts, with economic, political and historical factors playing significant roles in the engineering decision-making process.

First year GALCIT students are required to attend, with talks generally open to the public. Additionally, the fall term includes introductory lab tours to familiarize students with the research efforts underway at GALCIT. Typically, on weeks where an outside speaker is in attendance, lunch will be provided for a couple of students at the Athenaeum to provide for networking opportunities.
