Aviation Technology’s Hangar of the Future team has been selected as a co-winner of Boeing Corporation’s inaugural Information Technology Case Competition for developing a software application design for use in object recognition.
The Big Ten Network's LiveBIG blog this week features a story on the Hangar of the Future in the College of Technology. The Hangar of the Future offers students a chance to develop electronic and digital solutions to improve maintenance and safety procedures of cutting-edge aircraft. The initiative is led by Tim Ropp, clinical associate professor of aviation technology.
