During its second meeting of the quarter, the Faculty Senate heard ASSU executives Shanta Katipamula ’19 and Ph.D candidate in education Rosie Nelson outline their goals for the 2018-2019 school year, with particular attention paid to forming partnerships between Stanford students, faculty and staff.
Previously, Stanford’s aeronautics and astronautics department only offered degrees for master’s and Ph.D. students. Starting next fall, undergraduates will be able to get a degree in the field.
Despite the government shutdown and its effects on National Aeronautics and Space Administration, students such as Sean Copeland M.S. ’10, Ph.D. ’15 in Stanford’s Department of Aeronautics & Astronautics remain hopeful for a career in the field.
