Hi! My name is Cameron Sahagian-Crandall. I’m a senior in the Aerospace Engineering department at the University of Michigan. I have always had an interest in future-focused industries, and I enjoy working on challenging and exciting problems. Aerospace engineering is an embodiment of these interests to me, and it’s what I’m most passionate about.

I’m currently Chief Engineer of the Michigan Aeronautical Science Association. MASA is a rocketry team at the University of Michigan that I have worked on for the last four years. Before that, I was Structures Lead. I first worked on our liquid bipropellant rocket called Tangerine Space Machine, which was designed to be the first amateur liquid rocket to reach space. Now, MASA is developing a new liquid bipropellant rocket called Clementine, which is designed to break the world altitude record for amateur liquid rockets.

From January 2020 until July 2020, I worked a co-op at Northrop Grumman’s Launch Vehicles Division in Chandler, Arizona. I worked in their Dynamic Environments group, predicting vibration and shock in components and secondary structures and leading a test campaign to more accurately perform shock testing. Last summer I interned with Northrop Grumman’s Propulsion Systems in Promontory, Utah. I worked with the Loads and Environments team creating and analyzing FE models of motor cases and nozzles, defining vehicle requirements, and predicting self-induced static and dynamic motor loads.
