I currently work at Boeing as a Structural Analysis Engineer...on the P-8 Poseidon program. This is a 737 developed for the U.S. Navy that is used for maritime reconnaissance and tracking submarine activity in the world’s oceans. Much of what I do expands upon the material I learned in my aerospace structures classes [at Illinois].
