Rowan AIAA Executive Board Spring 2017 – Fall 2017

President – Tyler Harlow | Electrical Engineering ’18

[email protected]

Tyler is conducting his undergraduate studies in Electrical and Computer Engineering and has been involved with AIAA since his freshman year. Starting off as a hobby rocketeer in high school, he came to Rowan looking for an opportunity to break into the field of aerospace engineering even though Rowan does not offer it as a major. After discovering AIAA and joining a small rocket project the end of his freshman year, Tyler started the Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition (IREC) team at the beginning of his sophomore year and has led the team out to Utah and New Mexico to compete against 100+ schools at this competition. That same year he was elected President, and awarded AIAA’s “outstanding student award” for technical excellence.

Tyler hopes to make a contribution in the field of spaceflight, and hopes that his participation in the IREC will establish him as someone with both passion and experience within the field. He pictures himself ideally working as a project or flight manager in the future for a launch contractor like SpaceX, Blue Origin or Virgin Galactic.

Eric Westphal

Andrew is conducting his undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering and has been involved with the club since his Junior year. Andrew first got involved with AIAA after being apart of the Rowan Engineering Sophomore Rocket Clinic class. In that class he met Tyler Harlow and got involved in the IREC competition team. Currently he is a part of the IREC Senior Clinic project, where he helps design and manufacture the structural components that make up the rocket, as well as being in charge of the AIAA Blast Off! competition.

Tyler is currently a Sophomore Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) student pursuing a minor in physics. He is additionally enrolled in the honors concentration and plays on Rowan’s club golf team. He comes from Ocean Township, a coastal town in central New Jersey. In his spare time he enjoys going rock climbing, playing Frisbee, and training his dog. He originally cultivated his aerospace interests by watching science channel. These interests have led him to be the project lead for Rowan AIAA’s Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition team entering for the first time this June. He hopes to continue to develop his skills and broaden the scope of his knowledge to attain a career in which he can make a difference in the aerospace world.
