STU Student Lands NASA Internship

STU senior Javier Rojas
St. Thomas University senior Javier Rojas, 21, was recently selected to be a part of National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) summer internship program, the Centennial Challenges Program in Huntsville, Alabama.

During the paid internship, which begins June 6 and ends in August, Javier will research new technology developments in solving complex problems associated with spaceflight and living on another planet!

He credits STU faculty and staff, specifically the Office of Career Services, for mentoring him, guiding him and helping him pursue such a prestigious internship.

“I’m looking forward to this amazing experience,” Javier said. “And I’m so grateful for St. Thomas for preparing me with all the skills, help and guidance that has prepared me for this high-caliber internship. I’m excited to represent St. Thomas.”

Javier, a mathematics major and computer science minor, graduates in August, and is planning on pursuing his master’s degree at STU.
