2017 Summer Intern Flight suit shoot - Patrick Jung

The featured student this week is Patrick Jung, a Mechanical Engineering major from Knoxville, Tennessee, who worked for NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia.

Jung worked in the Advanced Measurement & Data Systems branch of the Research Directorate at NASA Langley Research Center. His main task was to parameterize the design of a strain gage for simple and immediate visualization of design specification changes. “I liked that there were open lectures every week of the internship providing a glimpse of the many areas of interest at the center,” Jung said. “There was also a class focusing on the basics of Finite Element Analysis offered, as well as many tours of the state of the art facilities on center.”
