Kyle Vernyi

Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Systems Engineering, ‘23
Software engineering intern, NASA Glenn Research Center
Pursuing doctorate in aerospace engineering at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Kyle almost majored in music education at UA, but the engineering progress made by SpaceX excited his interest in another field — aerospace engineering. And now he feels confident for the next step in his career at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, thanks in part to the experiential learning opportunities he gained at UA.

“The co-op program in the College of Engineering and Polymer Science really helps you understand what actual engineering looks like outside of academia. Having worked a part-time engineering job since my sophomore year has allowed me to gain knowledge about topics not covered in class.”
