Chandler Moore named aerospace engineering's Outstanding Student

Chandler Moore

Chandler Moore, senior in aerospace engineering, was recognized as the Department of Aerospace Engineering’s Outstanding Student for 2017. Read why listening to his mom paid off and how soon he’ll not only be walking across the graduation stage, but toward the altar.

"I chose to major in aerospace engineering because of the awe-inspiring applications of technology in aeronautics and astronautics. For example, our advances in space flight have come to define our technological progress as a society, i.e. we put a man on the moon. Plus, my mom told me I should major in aerospace engineering. I was honored to be nominated by the aerospace faculty; I am thankful for their guidance and the help they have given me.  This award is the culmination of their guidance, years of hard work, and an abundance of caffeine. After I graduate in May, I am getting married and plan to attend the University of Florida in the fall to pursue my Ph.D in aerospace engineering with professor Balachandar. I will conduct research at the Center for Compressible Multiphase Turbulence to further the field of multiphase simulations."
