Aerospace students shine at AIAA student conference
Department aerospace students went three-for-three taking home top honors at the 2019 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Region III Student Conference.
Second place in the master’s category went to Nicole Whiting for her presentation "Design of an Experimental Facility for Characterization of Dynamic Stall." Advised by Mo Samimy, Whiting is also an Ohio Space Grant Consortium Fellow.
As first place winners, Harter and O’Neill have also earned a trip to the AIAA SciTech Forum in January 2020 to compete at the national level with other regional winners.
According to its website, the conference encourages students in aerospace-related fields to discuss research, exchange knowledge and generate interest in the field of aerospace engineering. This year’s event was held at Cleveland State University and was represented by schools across the Midwest, including Purdue University and University of Michigan, among others.
Congratulations to Braxton, Nicole and Collin!
