Renegar, Luke

Renegar, Luke
Major: 
Aerospace Engineering

What is the RISE area of interest during your first year and why?: 

For my first year, I will be doing Instruction. I am involved with Balloon Payload Program, so being involved as a TF for ENAE 100 and assisting with balloon projects for that class is an exciting and meaningful way for me to give back to the program.

What is the RISE area of interest during your second year and why?: 
For my second year, I will be doing Research. As part of the aerospace departmental honors program, I am completing an honors research thesis. I plan on using my honors research project as the basis for my RISE research project.
What are your involvements and or extracurricular activities?: 

My work with the Balloon Payload Program has been the coolest thing I have done in engineering at Maryland thus far. I have designed projects to fly on high-altitude weather balloons to above 100,000 feet. I also helped design parts of our current tracking system.
