Whether your passion is to become a pilot here in the US or across the globe to help solve the world's pilot shortage; to design new space systems to help the world communicate better or aid in Mission to Mars; to help fuel the future through improved design of alternative energy systems such as fuel cells; to operate and manage swarms of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs); to create and operate new robotic manufacturing systems—or to design, build, and operate the engineered systems that will help us in our homes and businesses...the College of Aeronautics and Engineering (CAE) at Kent State University will help get you there!

As a tenured pilot with Southwest Airlines, Ted Orris’83 has stayed involved with his alma mater. He has been involved in College of Aeronautics and Engineering events, serving as a keynote speaker for Safety Day and was honored at the 2018 Vision 21 Awards Banquet.
