$5,000 Match for AERO Department Lab Support
From December 5 - 25, Robert Wulf (AERO, '63), and his wife, Kathleen, are generously matching donations to the AERO Department Lab Endowment. Their match applies to cumulative gifts up to $5,000, providing a total potential impact of at least $10,000 for Learn by Doing in the department labs.
About Cal Poly's Aerospace Engineering
Aerospace Engineering is home to a strong collaboration of student clubs and labs. That collaboration allows our students to participate in some of the best hands-on learning experiences. From the Human Powered Vehicle team pushing the limits of human performance to members of our Autonomous Flight Lab team helping the U.S. Forest Service gather data, our students are sought after by industry leaders because of their ability to identify, formulate and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics. Our students excel in dreaming, designing and creating aircraft and aerospace products.
As one of the department's premier labs, Cal Poly’s Low Speed Wind Tunnel lab has been a workhorse for the department for decades, serving hundreds of students coming through the aeronautical program. In fact many of our alums have fond memories of climbing on and in the wind tunnel to install models and take measurements, and a host of them have gone on to careers in aerodynamics with NASA, Boeing, Northrup Grumman, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, and many others.
