Best Engineering Graduate
Lawrence Tech has a long history of aeronautics education and research:
Today, aeronautical engineering at Lawrence Tech continues to thrive. Each year, students successfully compete in SAE Aero Design® competitions and are active on campus in the student branch of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. In recent years, graduates have been hired by major aeronautical and aerospace companies including NASA, Cessna, Boeing, and Goodrich Aerostructures.
If you are earning a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, you are eligible to declare a minor in aeronautical engineering. If you have already completed a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, or a comparable degree, you may pursue a certificate in aeronautical engineering.
Dr. Gerhardt teaches courses in aerodynamics, thermal dynamics, integrated mechanical design, and many others. He has received numerous awards and honors for his exceptional performance in the classroom.
