Alumni & Friends
**Attention Alumni** Tell us how you're doing by sending us a write-up of the news event at UC.Aerospace.News@mail.ase.uc.edu
Adam Miller (Aerospace, Class of 2013) is a GE Aviation 2nd rotation EEDP that continues to execute on critical commercial NPI (P20) activities while learning new tools, processes, & technologies. In addition to taking ownership of the P20 Ox-Ox CMC cover panels and shrouds, Adam has completed the design of a simplified, weight-neutral similar part resulting in significant cost savings for the engine. Adam is able to accomplish this work autonomously with little oversight and reacts quickly to design change requests & challenges--clearly demonstrating results in an uncertain world.
Fellow alumni from the class of '63 met on campus during the 2014 CEAS Awards Banquet week.
