@Ankita Katdare • 06 Feb, 2015 Here are some more ideas:

PHOENIX 607 Aerospace Engineering Graduation Project 2007 -

At Carleton University, some engineers have built a project for developing an integrated multi-mission UAS. The development started seven years ago as one of the final-year undergraduate projects within the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. The Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) can be used for high-resolution magnetic surveys

pulse jet engine testing by Indian Aeronautical Engineers

Freshmen aerospace engineering students working in the Collective Dynamics and Control Laboratory at the University of Maryland have designed a micro aerial vehicle (MAV) based on a rotorcraft design. In order to test the design at the appropriate Reynolds number, they built a 10:1 scale version of the vehicle that works in water.
