Dr. Jaiwon Shin, Associate Administrator, NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD) is visiting the University Politehnica of Bucharest, Faculty of Aerospace Engineering and will conference for the students and for the teaching and research staff on 30th of May 2019, 9:45 am in the Great Amphitheater F024 V. N. Constantinescu (Polizu). The professional prestige of Dr. Jaiwon Shin makes this visit a historic one for the academic community of our faculty and of our university.

NASA aeronautics has made decades of contributions to aviation. Every U.S. commercial aircraft and U.S. air traffic control tower has NASA-developed technology on board that helps improve efficiency and maintain safety. Research conducted by ARMD directly benefits today’s air transportation system, the aviation industry, and the passengers and businesses who rely on aviation every day. ARMD scientists, engineers, programmers, test pilots, facilities managers and strategic planners are focused on aviation’s future. They design, develop and test advanced technologies that will make aviation much more environmentally friendly, maintain safety in more crowded skies, and ultimately transform the way we fly.

NASA’s aeronautics research is primarily conducted at four NASA centers: Ames Research Center and Armstrong Flight Research Center in California, Glenn Research Center in Ohio, and Langley Research Center in Virginia.

NB We kindly ask all participants to be in time for the event. The amphitheater doors will close at 10 am! The conference will last for one hour.
