Spotlight on Research in Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

Fighting to go faster and farther than ever thought possible

Prof. Tom Juliano works at the next frontier of aerospace research, using the Mach-6 wind tunnel in the Hessert Laboratory for Aerospace Research to solve complex issues in high-speed flight. Plans are underway for a Mach-10 quiet tunnel that will extend research in this area to yet higher speeds.
