Luke Alexander is a 3rd year Aerospace Engineering student, leading the RECONSO cubesatellite mission. He’s desperately in need of undergrads that know C. If you’d like, you can read in-depth about the mission here, but essentially, they are:
- a satellite about the size of a shoebox
- selected and funded by the Air Force to launch in 2017
- going to detect and track orbital debris in low Earth orbit
As the project has matured, they’ve run into a problem: Georgia Tech doesn’t teach undergrad AE students C. The team is beginning work on software architecture, and getting heavily into serial communication, networking, and the Linux kernel. This is a great opportunity to work hands-on with hardware and the work has very real world applications – your code will be making a spacecraft function on-orbit! Projects like this are also a great way to get exposure to the space industry as the Air Force and NASA recruit directly from teams in the program; especially from the flight software teams.
RECONSO is looking for students to start work immediately over the summer, or when they get back to campus in the fall. In the fall, students will be able to receive research credit for their work from our principal investigator, Dr. Holzinger.
Staying on campus this summer? ORGT wants to help you explore the South, or learn a new sport, or both! ORGT hosts quite a few weekend trips, and it’s not just hiking. There are lessons for kayaking, caving, mountain biking, rock climbing and more! Their website is http://www.crc.gatech.edu/orgt/
Already thinking about next summer’s internship? So is Boston Consulting Group! BCG is looking for people with relentless curiosity, strong work ethic, a desire for independent thinking, teamwork, and global impact – quite a hefty list! BCG hires from a wide range of academic backgrounds.
Interested in working with BCG or consulting in the future? Take their our Associate Summer Outreach Survey to get in contact with BCG representatives for recruitment. Please take a few moments to let them know what you’re interested in, and upload a recent copy of your resume so they can learn more about you! BCG is excited to get to know you better, and can’t wait to show you how awesome their company is.
GENEROUS-TIME-GIVERS NEEDED (aka volunteers) for the inaugural Trinity Combine, to be held Sunday, May 17th at Georgia Tech’s Griffin track.
What is The Trinity Combine?
The Trinity Combine (http://www.thetrinitycombine.com/
) is the NFL Combine for ATL athletes stuck behind a desk. They’re a truly impressive group of leaders whose efforts are aimed to raise $100,000+ for Trinity Community Ministries, a non-religious, non-profit with a core mission to help homeless men reclaim their lives and return to their families and communities as mentors and leaders. Individuals and teams will compete in 10 events over a four-hour period: 400m run, FB throw, pull-ups, 40yd dash, dips, vertical jump, 20yd shuttle, 500m row, bench press and the 800m run.
Your help is needed in 2 critical capacities:
- Judges – responsible for judging and timing the events in line with event standards.
- Team Liaisons – each liaison will be responsible for keeping two teams (competing simultaneously) on schedule and motivated, as well as submitting their scores after each events.
Dr. John Cressler from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering is offering an interesting course in Spring 2016 -Cressler – Flier for new course 1-9-15. It’s offered through the Ivan Allen College. The course aims to create a dialogue around the intersection of engineering, science, and religion/world views.
Emory Law has recently created a dual Juris Master/ BS degree program with Georgia Tech. Download the flier here -GT Emory Law Dual Degree. The program gives students a year of concentrated curriculum on intellectual property, international business, M&A, and a variety of other topics.
