The Aerospace Engineering Distinguished Lecture, established in 2012 by a gift from Professors Carlos Felippa and K.C. Park and Kyungja Kim Park matched by College of Engineering and Applied Science Dean Rob Davis, brings exceptional engineering experts to share their work and interact with faculty. Preference is given to individuals with research interests in control and vehicle systems, fluid dynamics, structures and materials, and computational sciences.
Invited speakers visit the department, deliver a lecture open to college faculty and students, and meet with faculty and students as desired. Distinguished speakers are selected on the basis of their national and international reputation, as well as synergistic linkage with research and educational activities conducted in the AES department.
