Aerospace Engineering Program Seminar Series

October 1, 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Thoughts on Building a Career in Aerospace Engineering

Featuring former NASA astronaut Rick Hieb!

NASA and the space programs of the world have helped make aerospace engineering one of the most highly sought after fields for technically oriented individuals. Mr. Hieb will speak about his experiences in building a career that began as a specialist engineer in rendezvous and proximity operations as the Space Shuttle program began, and led to an opportunity to apply for and be selected as an American astronaut.

After three space missions as a mission specialist astronaut, Mr. Hieb spent 20 years as an industry executive, culminating in a vice president position at Lockheed Martin where he was responsible for more than $1B in sales each year. From his experience as an individual contributor and as a leader, he will speak to the skills and attributes needed to build a successful career in aerospace engineering, or really any highly technical field.
