Omaha – The Aviation Institute is pleased to welcome our newest faculty member, Chenyu “Victor” Huang, Ph.D.
Huang joins UNO from Purdue University where he served as a post-doctoral research fellow after earning his M.S. in Aviation and Aerospace Management and Ph.D. in Technology. He also holds an M.S. in Air Traffic Planning and Management and a B.S. in Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
Huang will lead the Aviation Institute’s new concentration in Unmanned Aircraft Systems, which offers undergraduate students an interdisciplinary curriculum to prepare them for careers in this rapidly growing industry. He has already begun to develop a UAS Lab which will share space for the time being with one of the Institute’s flight training simulators on the lower level of the CPACS Building. The lab will provide students the opportunity for experiential learning in the development and maintenance of drones as well as sensors and other critical components. The lab will also provide opportunities for outreach and engagement.
Huang is already busy meeting colleagues across campus who are interested in using drones in their research and welcomes inquiries about how the UAS Lab can be resource in those efforts. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
