ICYMI: Our Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Team @uavaustin took 6th place overall out of 69 competing teams at the 2018 @auvsi SUAS competition. This is the best placement the team has received since they began competing in 2009. ✈️🤘Way to go, #TexasEngineers ! “For me, I think the most rewarding part was just being out in Maryland with an aircraft I put so much of my time into building. Being able to see it fly was such an amazing feeling,” said team member and aerospace engineering major Amanda Kaeni shown here in the first photo. “I think what I’ve learned and will carry into my future endeavors is how important it is to stay calm when there are problems. We handled everything thrown at us the best way we possibly could have and it worked out. It was such an amazing experience.” #auvsi#suas#uav#uavs#uas#systemsengineering#unmannedaerialvehicles#unmannedaerialsystems#drones#aerospac#aerospaceengineering#whatstartshere ✈️🤘
We love it when our alumni stop by for a visit, especially with their aspiring young rocket scientists! Today we had the joy of meeting alumna Rebekah Siegfriedt's adorable baby boy, who is obviously ready to start his aerospace education at #UTAustin today. #littlelonghorns#texasengineers#hookem#rocketscience 🚀🤘
Meet @hannah_c_moore - another one of our students involved with Projects with Underserved Communities this summer! Hannah was part of PUC team Mexico that traveled to a small community called Santiago Suchilquitongo where the team built two solar ovens for a mesquite flour facility.
Hannah says she had an amazing experience getting to know the members of the community and that it was a great reminder of the impact that engineers can have on people all around the world. @cockrellschool @worldandut 🌍🤘#puc#whatstartsherechangestheworld#community#solarpowered#solarovens#mesquiteflour#texasengineers#hookem
