Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Simulating the trajectory and ground track of a spy satellite

Molniya satellites were placed in orbits that allowed for long periods of uninterrupted coverage of Russia and the United States. This project would involve simulating these orbits using a program like MATLAB or Python using classic orbital mechanics, in order to visualize the ground track of the satellite and compute coverage times.

Use machine learning to design the "perfect" win

The chemical properties of a bottle of wine can be used to predict the quality of the wine, and therefore its value. This project would involve training various different machine learning models to perform this task, and would also involve using the resulting model to design the "perfect" wine.

Coding skills

MATLAB, Python, Julia, R
