Rocket Project Coordinator - Andrew Uscinski

Andrew is in his 4th Year of a Bachelor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Queensland (UQ).

His involvement with the AYAA began after he attended the Aerospace Futures conference in 2016. Since then, he has engaged in and helped coordinate many of the AYAA’s events. In 2017, he became the photographer for AYAA’s Queensland committee, and in 2018, he transitioned to the role of National Media Manager. Andrew has also been both a Leader and Organising Committee Member for the 2017 and 2018 Australian Youth Aerospace Forums in Brisbane.

Andrew takes the initiative to apply and extend his knowledge and skills in engineering concepts beyond his university studies. He has led many extra-curricular activities, including putting together crewed Mars mission design reports and a liquid fuelled rocket project. Upon completion of his degree, he aims to work within either the mission planning or rocket propulsion disciplines. He is excited to be rejoining the AYAA National Committee in 2019 as the Rocket Project Coordinator and looks forward to a successful year.
