This week's Xploration Outer Space episode featured the West Virginia University high altitude balloon team. While this is the sixth episode to air, it was actually my very first shoot of the entire season! I felt really excited that we were able to show off one of the many fun engineering opportunities that are available to WVU students.
I was very lucky to have gone through the WVU Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources. Because of this, I wanted to use this as an opportunity to show off what students have done with an engineering degree from WVU. From NASA to Nascar, missiles and defense to launching rockets to the International Space Station - WVU students have used their degrees to pursue their dreams. Scroll through the images above to see what these recent WVU Engineering grads are doing today.
