Engineering students space out

Six ECU engineering students participated in the inaugural N.C. Space Symposium hosted by N.C. Space Grant, a consortium of universities in North Carolina that support aerospace education and research, in partnership with NASA and industry.

The event was held April 4-5 at N.C. State University in Raleigh.

ECU students presenting posters included:

  • Samson Goodrich – Automated impact device for evaluating a prototype ultrasensitive mass detector
  • Julian Quintero-Rivera – Evaluation of UAV Atmospheric Sensor Configurations on Satellite Signal Acquisition
  • Mariah Mook – Evaluation of Coupled Cantilevers for Mass Detection
  • Andrew Grena and Evan Diener – Representing ECU NASA Rover Challenge team
  • Angela Krebs – Analytical Model of Ocean Energy: Determining Peak Energy Level Potential
