AIAA-PUPR Congratulates Student Antonio Rivera

AIAA PUPR
Year In A View, AIAA PUPR Student Branch

Antonio Rivera, senior student of Mechanical Engineering with Aerospace Minor and member of the AIAA. He presented his paper, “Compressibility and Sweep Corrections to Vortex Theory” at the 68th Annual Southeastern Regional Student Conference on March 20, 2017. All the judges were surprised by the talent and the level of research of our student.

He’s the first and only student from Puerto Rico presenting a paper to the AIAA, the world’s most prestigious association of aerospace professionals and academics.

He was captain of PUPR’s helicopter design team in American Helicopter Society’s 34th annual design competition, receiving an award for  being the best new entry.  Antonio also secured a job position as an engineer with Sikorsky (a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin).

Congratulations Antonio, we are very proud of your accomplishments!
