Aerospace engineering student Adam Boro has been named among the 2019 “Tomorrow’s Technology Leaders: The 20 Twenties” by the Aviation Week Network in collaboration with the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). The awards program recognizes top students in engineering, math, science, and technology from across the country and globe on the basis of their academic performance, civic contribution, and research or design project.

Boro is a junior aerospace engineering major and member of the Aerospace Honors Program and the Science, Discovery and the Universe Program of College Park Scholars. He is an active member of UMD’s student chapter of AIAA, serves as fundraising chair of the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity, and is active with the Terrapin Trail Club. Boro has served in leadership positions for UMD’s Gamera (human-powered helicopter) project, completed an Alexander R. Norris Space View Internship with AIAA, and interned under the Jacobs Test Operations and Support Contract at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. Boro is also conducting space exploration research at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center under the satellite servicing division.

Since The Aviation Week Network first launched the “20 Twenties” program in 2013, the organization has recognized 13 UMD students and alumni as 20 Twenties. This year’s winners were honored during Aviation Week’s 62nd Annual Laureates Awards March 14 at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC.
