Need some help selecting a research topic!

  1. Nov 27, 2011 #1
    Hey guys, I am current a junior studying Aerospace Engineering focusing on Astronautics. I was wondering if you guys could help me suggest a few research topics. This will be my first research project and I am doing this under the guidance of a professor however he has asked me to select a topic.

    I was considering to focus on these two topics:

    Hybrid Engines for Rockets
    Thrust vectoring

    My professor requires a concrete research topic instead of a general one, could you please recommend ANY topics regarding rockets wether they are from the list above or not.

    I have currently finished the following courses

    Math (Calc 1,2,3 and Differential Equations)
    Engineering ( Aerodynamics I, Fluid Mechanics, Solids, Statics, Dynamics, Thermodynamics)
    Physics ( Kinematics, Thermodynamics, optics, electricity and magnetism)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thank you very much for your time
