Lockheed Martin Jet Fighter Simulators visit UTEP Engineering
February 21, 2012 | UNIVERSITY COMMUNICATIONS
The University of Texas at El Paso and Lockheed Martin invite you to experience the excitement of jet fighter flight through pilot training simulators, February 21 and 22 from 8:30am-5:00pm in the College of Engineering foyer. The Lockheed Martin simulators are part on National Engineers Week activities in the College of Engineering.
Lockheed Martin pilots will show students how to fly using T-50 and F-22 flight simulators. Students will have the opportunity to experience take off, missiles launching, flight formations and land the aircraft in real-world conditions.
"This presentation shows some of the opportunities a degree in Engineering opens," said Karla Rovirosa, UTEP Industrial Engineering graduate and Lockheed Martin Systems Engineer. Rovirosa interned twice with Lockheed Martin while working on her Master's degree in Systems Engineering. She has recently been accepted into the Leadership Development Program at Lockheed Martin.
Four Lockheed Engineers/pilots join Rovirosa - Clyde Bellinger, Mike Joergensen, Jeff Thom, and Jonathan Lalor. David Rapisand, Director of Finances and a UTEP College of Business Administration graduate and Gold Nugget recipient completes the visiting team.
