Earlier this month, roughly 170 delegates from 16 universities converged on Memphis, Tenn., to take part in AIAA's 2014 Southeastern Regional Student Conference. One of the most well-represented schools was UAH, whose team of 16 included junior aerospace engineering major Markus Murdy. "Events like this are important to me as a student because they are great for networking with students at other universities who are also passionate about aerospace topics," says Murdy. "They also provide an opportunity to present and promote my work in a professional atmosphere among my peers." Of the six divisions that made up the conference, UAH students presented in five – and took home awards in four.
