James McElreath, an undergraduate student in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University, was named the international runner-up of the American Helicopter Society’s (AHS) prestigious 2018 Robert L. Lichten Award competition.
Three students from the College of Engineering have been named Distinguished Graduate Students for 2018. They were among a group of 16 graduate students from Texas A&M University who are pursuing their master’s or doctoral degrees.
For her outstanding contributions to the understanding of the behavior of liquids and gases in motion as related to need in aeronautics and astronautics, Dr. Helen Reed, Regents Professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been awarded the 2018 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Fluid Dynamics Award.
John Barton was selected as the 2017 Public Sector recipient of the John “Jake” Landen Memorial Safety Award by the Traffic Safety Industry Division (TSID) of the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) for his role spanning a 30-year career at TxDOT.
Dr. Jonathan Burns, an associate research scientist with the Nuclear Security Science and Policy Institute (NSSPI), was recently awarded a research and development award of nearly $400,000 from the U.S. Department of Energy as part of their Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP)
A team of Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) researchers has been selected for a potential award by NASA to lead research into commercially viable civil supersonic transport aircraft that meet noise and efficiency requirements for overland flight. Put simply, their research is on designing an aircraft that can modify its shape in real time in order to optimize for fuel efficiency or quiet flight as the flight phase and conditions change. The team is one of five transformative system-level aviation innovations that NASA has selected as part of the NASA Aeronautics’ University Leadership Initiative (ULI.)
Dr. Mian Riaz, director of the Process Engineering R&D Center and head of the extrusion technology program at Texas A&M University, was recently awarded the 2016 Bernard Lown '42 Alumni Humanitarian Award from the University of Maine Alumni Association.
