Thomas Hanson, senior in wireless engineering, has been selected as the program’s outstanding student for 2017. After graduation, he is taking his engineering talents to Northrop Grumman Corp.

“I am from Gulf Shores, Alabama, and graduated from Gulf Shores High School in 2013. I decided to major in wireless engineering because of my interest in technology and my desire to learn about both software and electrical engineering principles. This award means a lot to me because of the great value of the things I have learned while pursuing this major as well as the hard work I have put into it. Looking toward the future, I am planning to work for the Northrop Grumman Corp. in Huntsville, Alabama, once I graduate this semester and apply all of the things I have learned during my time at Auburn.”
