Three Aerospace Engineering Students Receive Mtech ASPIRE Awards
Three Department of Aerospace Engineering students are recipients for A Scholars Program for Industry-Oriented Research in Engineering (ASPIRE) Program Awards. Gerald Andrews (left), David Hairumian (center) and Gary Wolfe (right) were selected to receive Fall 2014 ASPIRE Awards.
The ASPIRE program, created by the Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute (Mtech), introduces undergraduates to the discipline and rewards of industrially-oriented engineering projects. Students perform research during the Fall and/or Spring semesters under the guidance of an engineering faculty or staff mentor. ASPIRE awardees receive a scholarship of $1,000 for each semester project.
Awardees must produce and submit a project report, approved by the mentor, at the end of each semester or summer project. In addition, ASPIRE scholars are encouraged to present a poster on their project at the campus Undergraduate Research Day held each April.
