The aerospace minor is intended to supplement one of Caltech's undergraduate degrees and is designed for students who wish to broaden their knowledge beyond their normal major or who may wish to pursue a graduate program involving aerospace or aeronautical engineering. Students completing the aerospace minor requirements will have the phrase "minor in aerospace engineering" added to their transcripts.
[JPL chief technologist] Fred Hadaegh opened the proposal and said, 'Did the undergraduate students write this proposal?'... This is amazing because they essentially worked together for only a month or two to come up with one of the most compelling dust mitigation ideas selected by NASA for development.
