CAE’s Sydney Bihn Selected to Attend ThinkChicago

Sydney Bihn, an aerospace engineering student at the College of Aeronautics and Engineering, was selected from an elite pool of applicants to attend a three-day event for the nation’s top engineering, computer science, design and business students.

Attendees immerse themselves in Chicago’s tech scene and attend thought-provoking panels at Chicago Ideas Week. Bihn, and peers received a behind-the-scenes tour of Chicago’s technology ecosystem and gain access to more than 150 globally-recognized speakers at 100-plus events.

“I feel honored to be selected to attend this event with achieved students from around the country,” Bihn said. “Being selected reaffirms my decision to study aerospace engineering and inspires confidence that I am doing what I am meant to be doing.”

Students are accepted into the program based on their interest in key industries and have a demonstrated commitment to excellence.

“I was excited to network and meet influential people in the tech industry as well as collaborating with accomplished students from around the country to solve real problems,” Bihn said.

The event took place October 18-20, 2018.  For more information on ThinkChicago:
