Student Highlight

Austin is a senior in mechanical engineering at University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS).  He is minoring in aerospace engineering and mathematics.  At UCCS he worked on a space tether research project and is currently involved in the development of a video-capture system to analyze human body mechanics.  Austen won the COSGC Elaine Hansen NASA Internship competition and spent summer 2012 at the NASA Ames Aerospace Academy working on conceptual designs of civilian transport tiltrotor aircraft.  His future plans include working in the aerospace industry, earning a graduate degree, becoming a test pilot and ultimately an astronaut.




Welcome to the Colorado Space Grant Consortium

Here you will find all you would like to know about our organization and our student programs. If you do not find what you are looking for, please contact me directly.

The COSGC is funded by NASA and is a state-wide organization involving 17 colleges, universities and institutions around Colorado. Our organization provides Colorado students access to space through innovative courses, real-world hands-on telescope and satellite programs, and interactive outreach programs.

Our students interact with engineers and scientists from NASA and aerospace companies to develop, test, and fly new space technologies and to support our outreach and teaching programs.

We welcome all students and are always looking for way to enhance their experience through new interactions and collaborations with NASA, government agencies, and companies.

I hope you enjoy your visit to our site and I look forward to your involvement in our program.
