NASA’s Johnson Space Center is home to America’s astronauts, the International Space Station mission operations, the Orion Program, and a host of future space developments.
During ‘NASA Day’ at Prairie View A&M University this week, recruiters from Johnson Space Center will speak to faculty and students about available programs, research opportunities, full-time employment, and internships.
“A lot of our technologies come from NASA, and we want our students to be part of that culture,” said Dr. Pamela Obiomon, dean of the Roy G. Perry College of Engineering, announcing Tuesday’s visit.
Before joining PVAMU, the new dean worked in the Shuttle Avionics Integration Laboratory at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX. Her research interests lie in microsystems, smart systems using field-programmable gate arrays and the design of FPGA-based controllers for autonomous vehicles.
“The day is a great chance for our students to understand the mission of NASA and connect with alumni who are working at the Johnson Space Center,” Dr. Obiomon said.
Johnson Space Center speakers include Ronnie Clayton, the deputy chief technologist, Annette Moore, director of Information resources, Misti Moore, external relations – Office of STEM Engagement, and Montgomery Goforth, strategic pursuits and partnerships manager.
Throughout the day, participants will have access to a mobile, multi-media exhibit that immerses visitors in NASA’s story. Students will discover how NASA provides critical technological advances to improve life on Earth.
