Dr. Karen Feigh was featured in a recent Georgia Tech news article discussing the increasing number of women in engineering. The disproportionate number of male to female students at Georgia Tech may long have drawn attention to itself – despite the fact that the Institute has established itself as the No. 1 producer of female engineers in the United States. In reality, though, those female engineers have been drawing significant attention of their own.
The National Research Council recently announced it has selected Dr. Karen Feigh to serve on its prestigious Aeronautics and Space Engineering Board (ASEB). A former Marshall Scholar who earned her undergraduate and doctoral degrees in aerospace engineering at Georgia Tech, Feigh will be the youngest member ever to serve on this influential board.
Feigh learned of her appointment in early January and will be officially inducted onto the board at the ASEB April meeting in Washington, D.C.
