Ethan Husmann

Ethan Husmann, a rising senior at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, is pursuing a major in aerospace engineering major, with a minor in computer science minor.  He also has an interest in computing, networking, and software execution within a cyber security context. As an undergraduate researcher in Raytheon Technologies Fellowship Program, he has been gaining hands-on experience using python and MongoDB to build a database, and Proxmox as a virtualization platform to set up secure virtual machines to interact with potentially malicious software in a secure environment. He also participated in Virginia Tech’s Rocketry Club, where he worked as CAD Design Lead and Vehicle Systems Engineer to develop a solid propellant rocket that competed at the Spaceport America Cup competition. He has begun the process to obtain a TS/SCI clearance and intends to transition after graduation next spring to full time work with Raytheon. 

*Ethan is a three-time winner of the Vice Admiral Donald D. Engen Scholarship, and the first winner of the CWO4 (Ret) Gene and Kimberly Maguire Scholarship.
