U-M started the first collegiate aeronautics program in the U.S. in 1914. Since then, the Department has graduated more than 6,000 aeronautical and aerospace engineers. Today and tomorrow we’re celebrating our Aero Centennial on a Michigan scale. See all the cool stuff that you can participate in. http://aero100.engin.umich.edu/ #MichiganAero100
I’ve had a great, busy start to the semester. As always, it all begins with the welcome events on campus, which are great ways to welcome new students and returning students back from the long summer. After moving in and starting the first few days of classes, we had Festifall, a huge event on central campus that highlighted all of the students groups on campus. The entire main diag and surrounding pathways were filled with hundreds of clubs, groups, fraternities, sororities, and teams that students could get involved in. Being around the north campus community most often, I was shocked to see such a large variety of groups students could get involved with, and just how much variety there is.
Two days later was the Go North! Fest, geared more towards engineering. All of the student teams working out of the Wilson Student Team Project Center were there, along with a bunch of non-engineering student groups. This event was also a great way for engineering students and others to see what is out there. To me, its these out-of-class experiences that really define my Michigan experience. There is nothing better than being able to apply what you’ve learned in the classroom outside of it in a meaningful way, while also being able to do it with some amazing friends.

Over the course of six weeks, we documented an eclectic group of students whose lives were centralized around a dorm room in Bursley Hall on North Campus.
We then shared the photos with them and recorded their reactions.
It’s move in time! This came in from Instagram, and all we can say is…stay calm and GO BLUE on!
"The struggle is too real right now, now that I’m out of the dorms and without the parents’ help. But it’s gonna be worth it, once I’m all settled in and ready for that #UmichEngin grind. #Mgineer #goblue #movein Also on two hours of sleep rn. Great way to get use to dat #sleepdeprivation"
Nearly 40% of the Michigan Marching Band are engineering students! Today all the newbies got their U-M instruments and started drilling for the upcoming football season.
Our lab hosted a design seminar for some korean high school students interested in the field of design and human engineering early on during my research internship. These are some photos of me interacting with the students. Although many students were shy about their english speaking abilities I was able to communicate and help guide them through the design process with no problems. I worked in the Innovation and Industrial Design Lab at UNIST and learned many things about the product development process and the relationship between engineering and industrial design.
