Students Representing UAH at 63rd International Astronautical Congress

We are very proud to announce that 34 UAH student researchers will be representing our university at the upcoming 63rd International Astronautical Congress to be held in Naples, Italy from October 1-5. These students have been selected by the International Astronautical Federation to give 42 oral presentations and 5 poster presentations in the full technical sessions of the regular congress. This is a great accomplishment that recognizes the hard work of the individual students, and also highlights the high-quality faculty-student collaborative research and scholarship that our university provides for students who want to "go the extra mile."

The following students will be traveling and attending the congress from September 28 until October 6. During this time, they will be interacting with attendees of the single largest meeting of aerospace professionals, representing government, academia, and the private sector. The strong student and young professional component to this conference makes it an exceptional opportunity for these students to bring visibility and exposure to their research, as well as a chance to learn and interact with fellow students, leading researchers, heads of space agencies, and CEOs of major aerospace firms.
