UM students receive prize in NASA competition

Students from the University of Miami College of Engineering received second prize in the 2008 NASA Aeronautics Contest for their futuristic plane design.

The UM team was made up of four undergraduate engineering students, senior Sebastian Aspe and juniors Joseph Dussling, Nicholas Heinz and Daniel Martinez.

They designed a theoretical aircraft, potentially usable in 50 years, that is quiet and ultra-efficient.

“This team accomplished a goal that we didn’t think was possible,” said Dussling, the engineering team’s captain. “We are proud of our accomplishments from this past semester, but we hope to accomplish even more in the coming year.”
