My name is Emma Krieg and I am a junior in the Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics department. I received the Boeing Scholarship and am incredibly grateful to the AEM department for rewarding it to me. This scholarship will allow me to continue performing well in my courses, along with pursuing my interests in this field through extra curriculars. Since starting at the U of M, I have become very involved in the Rocket Team, specifically the simulations subteam, which I now lead. I have also gotten the opportunity to work with Dr. James Flaten on the high-altitude ballooning team, where I have worked on many projects, including exploring possible uses of atmospheric ballooning to test small satellites in the stratosphere. This summer, I will be working at UTC Aerospace as a systems engineering intern.
The Department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics maintains a strong relationship with our alumni, and continuously works to provide services and opportunities for alumni to stay in touch with the department and with each other.

otherwise might not have been
Keeping in Touch
The AEM Department alumni and friends are invited to become members of the AEM Alumni Network, to keep in touch and search for old classmates. Alumni may also join the College of Science and Engineering (CSE) Alumni Society and attend their events. In addition, join the University of Minnesota Alumni Association.
