From the Chair
Dr. Vigor Yang

Without a doubt, the opening of the Weber Building's Aero Maker Space this fall has energized our students and our faculty - challenging us all to think beyond computer-generated possibilities to concrete and innovative successes. That's a lesson that bears repeating.

Our faculty are doing just that.

Dr. Holzinger's recent AFOSR award, Dr. Lightsey's recent acquisition of an S-Band satellite ground station, and the impending launch of Dr. Gunter's RANGE cubesats are spawning new ambitions among
faculty and students alike.  If you haven't already, I invite you to thumb through our just-published FY 16 Annual Report - more evidence that our School's legacy of success is no fluke. It's a habit.

In the coming months, as we step up our recruitment of new faculty and students, the accomplishments of our current community will, I believe, attract like-minded ambitions.

I can hardly wait to meet our future.
