Meet Jared Sauer, a native of Savannah, Georgia, and a junior studying aerospace engineering at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Jared is a student participant within the University Consortium for Applied Hypersonics and recently finished an internship with Reaction Engines after finding the opportunity on the University Consortium for Applied Hypersonics website.
As long as he can remember, Jared has had a long-lasting interest in propulsion, namely air-breathing propulsion and works on emerging hypersonic technology with the UCAH research at the University of Alabama in Huntsville on rotating detonation engines and recently with precooled turbojets at Reaction Engines.
Jared categorized his time at Reaction Engines “as one the most enjoyable experiences of my life. My favorite memory is when we ran the test facility’s afterburning turbojet in the first few weeks of my internship…I wasn’t sure what to expect, but feeling my desk shake from the power of a massive engine made me so excited to be a part of the team working with it. After that, I knew I was going to love my time there.”
Workforce development is a huge focus of the University Consortium for Applied Hypersonics and our aim to connect more students with educational and employment opportunities within the hypersonic industry and within hypersonic research. Learn more here.
