Student and professor in lab.

The balance of theoretical and lab work provided to me at UCR helped me seamlessly transition to industry those first few years out of school. My peers at Northrop Grumman Aerospace Sector hail from top universities all over the nation and I have felt UCR did an excellent job preparing me to work with the other bright minds from around the nation.
