Based on his merits as an exceptional undergraduate aerospace student, Kyle was awarded a NASA Aeronautics Scholarship last year. During the summer, he will be working on a project as part of the program. He considers this, along with his ability to maintain good grades while juggling extracurricular activities, research experiences, and jobs, to be among his best academic achievements.
Kyle participates in several extracurricular activities. In past years, he has participated in the Engineering Tribunal, Relay for Life, and the Alpha Lambda Delta Honorary Fraternity. He is currently a member of Engineering Ambassadors. As an Engineering Ambassador, he works with prospective UC students by giving tours of the engineering buildings, participating on Q&A panels, and providing a student’s perspective on the CEAS aerospace department.
He is a student member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), an organization through which he co-authored and published a research paper.
He is also an active member of the UC Club Swim Team. “I am one of the club’s Safety Officers, where I am a (Red Cross) certified first responder for any injuries that may occur during practices or meets,” he said. “I am also currently working on expanding the club to include diving.”
