Cat Hannahs

A&A senior and Brooke Owens Fellow

Cat Hannahs made it to the Husky 100! As Chief Engineer of SARP, she leads the team of 150 students in the design, manufacturing, testing of a student-developed bipropellant rocket. She supports technical decisions and integration across avionics, propulsion, structures, and payload sub-teams. We are cheering for her and the whole SARP team for this year's launch on June 19th.
