Student Experience

It doesn't take a rocket scientist; it takes EnTec

No, this is not a photoshop trick. EnTec Civil Engineering student Maria Paola Lopez is really standing under the Space Shuttle Atlantis, in the "garage" at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in preparation for the final flight of the shuttle program. Maria Paola and a bus full of her EnTec classmates and professors were at NASA Kennedy in April of 2011 as special guests of the NASA Florida Space Grant Consortium. The group met with NASA engineers and scientists, toured behind-the-scene laboratories, learned about NASA research projects, and spent time discussing career paths with NASA and Space Shuttle specialists. Some might say it was a very long day. At EnTec, we say it was a rich day, packed with unmatched opportunities!
