When Dr. Hans Mark teaches UT's introduction to Aerospace Engineering course, he shares the inside story on every major aerospace project for the last half century. That is because he was always in the room championing the people and innovations that have given our country the edge in technology superiority to win the Cold War and lead the digital age. Whether you connected with Dr. Mark at Berkeley, MIT, Livermore, NASA, the Air Force, the Department of Defense or at UT, he no doubt made a mark on your life.
