Abstract : As part of the Special Studies section of the Summer Faculty Research Program, UES initiated a College Science and Engineering Program for the Astronautics Laboratory in 1988. The CSEP was sponsored by the Air Force Astronautics Laboratory through the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) and conducted by Universal Energy Systems, Inc. (UES). It provides research opportunities for qualified college students from U.S. universities or technical institutions. These opportunities consist of an eleven week research appointment with the Astronautics Laboratory, located at Edwards Air Force Base, California. The students were selected from such fields as Analytical Chemistry, Chemical Physics, Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Aeronautical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Nuclear Engineering, Material Science and Physics. The program objectives on the College Science and Engineering Program are as follows: 1) To simulate among college students broader interest in careers in science and engineering specialties if interest to the Air Force; 2) To establish individual working relationships between students and active researchers; and 3) To strengthen the nation's efforts to recruit and sustain careers in science and engineering.
