The Future of Airports

Presentation | December 10 | 10 a.m.-5 p.m. | 412 McLaughlin Hall

 Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE)

Ten groups of students from the highly popular CE 153 Airport Design Class will present their final term projects. Project themes cover an interesting spectrum of real-time aviation problems, and futuristic concepts. Real-time themes range from topics such as redesigning airports to address climate change, analysis of delays using machine learning, airport-apron energy use consumption, and consequences of Perimeter Rule relaxation.

Futuristic concepts cover topics such as vertiport design, planning and operations; understanding the impact of electric Vertical Take-off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft on vertiport capacity and environment; and defining the design eVTOL for vertiports. The design projects are focused on San Francisco International (SFO) airport, La Guardia (LGA) airport, John F. Kennedy (JFK) airport, and vertiport locations of the future.
