University of Tennessee at Martin engineering student Bradley Gregg of Union City has been selected for a NASA Undergraduate Research Project, a 15-week internship at one of the 10 NASA centers.
The NASA Undergraduate Student Research Project, or USRP, offers internship opportunities for undergraduate science and engineering students at all 10 NASA centers and additional partner facilities.
These mentor-guided internships provide hands-on, real-life, career-related experiences that challenge, inspire and provide practical application that complements and expands upon students’ academic education.
Gregg, a junior, will participate in a spring internship at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. He is a 4.0 grade-point-average engineering major with a concentration in mechanical engineering.
Gregg plans to attend graduate school to pursue a doctorate in aerospace engineering following graduation in May 2010.
“It’s been a dream of mine to work for NASA for quite some time now. Hopefully, this will help me get into a good graduate program and eventually lead me back to work for NASA,” he said.
