ACT Representative - Andrew Gibbs

Andrew Gibbs is a third-year electrical engineering student at UNSW Canberra.

He is honoured to be a part of the Chief of Defence Force Undergraduate Research Program, which has so far allowed him to complete fascinating projects in complex instrumentation work. Andrew joined the highly successful 2018 Aerospace Futures committee as day events coordinator and has since been involved in local AYAA events around the Canberra region. He is also the founder of the UNSW Canberra Rocket Team, which will aim to compete in the 2020 AURC.

The AYAA has offered Andrew valuable learning experiences and he hopes to provide more students in the ACT with similar opportunities. His long-term goal is to work on an Australian-made air or spacecraft to rival the wow factor of an SR-71.
