Wichita State University has risen to second among the nation's universities in aeronautical research and development expenditures, according to the latest information from the National Science Foundation's National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics.

In fiscal year 2009, Wichita State had $50 million in aeronautical R&D expenditures, compared to $32.9 million in 2008.

Wichita State was fourth in 2008 and third in 2007.

This $17 million increase in expenditures puts Wichita State just more than $1 million behind the top institution, Utah State University, which reported $51.6 million and operates the Space Dynamics Laboratory.

Wichita State's numbers reflect the efforts of the National Institute for Aviation Research's (NIAR) mission to support the local aviation industry by providing research, development, testing and certification.
