|Willie B. Williams
Willie B. Williams, a NASA research program
manager who made a brief visit to campus in March to discuss the
agency’s research on the International Space Station, has
returned to spend the summer as a visiting NASA Fellow.
Williams is a fellow in the NASA Administrator’s
Fellowship Program. His research interests are software engineering,
tele-communications and information technology. His assignment as
a NAFP Fellow includes participating in developing and testing different
designs and other applications for use on the space station.
He is assigned to the Division of Engineering in
of Engineering and Computer Science, where he plans to offer
faculty members and graduate students guidance and counsel regarding
funding for research projects.
“I will participate with the university in
its collaboration with local community colleges and high schools
to explore the work that NASA does to excite students, especially
minority students, about the challenges and opportunities that careers
in engineering, science and aerospace offer,” he said.
Williams invites faculty members and students to
make arrangements to meet with him to discuss NASA grant opportunities.
He may be contacted at 278-7028.
