Meet Naish

Aerospace Engineering
Class of ’18


Hey there, welcome to my student page! I’m Naish, a senior majoring in Aerospace Engineering from Colorado Springs, Colorado. On campus, I’m involved with SC AIAA, a Professional Aerospace Organization. In addition, I worked at The Boeing Company on 787-10 Flight Testing last summer! While my Colorado roots stay strong during the winter, I still thrive in Los Angeles by going on trips to Mammoth with the SC Ski and Snowboard Team! Two years ago I studied abroad in Madrid, Spain with the Viterbi Summer Overseas Program! I’m also a pilot, and have flown a number of different light aircraft, from Diamonds to Cirrus to Cessna’s and more (even seaplanes)!




Involvements

I’ve interned at The Boeing Company (three summers ago in the Flight Sciences High Speed Aerodynamics group). I was working on fuel mileage, or the MPG’s of airplanes. My internship experience culminated in delivering a brand new 787-8 Dreamliner to an airline customer in Singapore and then presenting a report to the airline! Additionally, last summer, I worked on Flight Test Engineering for the new and improved 787-10!
My involvement in SC AIAA is an opportunity to help connect students in aerospace related majors at USC to career events, resume reviews, and also with helpful tips and advice on increasing their chances of getting that dream job or internship!
Being a pilot is a great time – not only do I get to discover new places from the air, I get to share those experiences (most of the time) with adventurous friends!

My Major at USC: Aerospace Engineering


My Favorite Classes!
In Basic Flight Mechanics, I get to learn about how aircraft fly, and what makes them perform differently. Also, we get to perform our own conceptual design process throughout the last months of the class!
Mechoptronics I is usually a class that’s dreaded among engineering students at USC because of its difficulty, but I’ve actually really enjoyed it! We’ve learned about filters, linear circuits, and will be going through shock wave propagation and wind tunnel testing next semester!

Application Essays

“Ask yourself when answering a question or responding to an essay: is this really me? Take a step back, seriously, and look at what you're writing. Is this what you'd say to any other friend who knows you well? If your answer is yes, you're definitely on the right track!”

3 Truths and a Lie

Can you guess which of these are true or false?
True! I love them with hummus
Nope! It’s actually a Super Cub on Floats. Check it out here

TV is Tight

  • Westworld is just another of HBO’s rise to fame TV series of late! I highly recommend checking it out.

  • House of Cards was the first TV show that I actually really enjoyed, and watched all the way through. I got my dad hooked on it as well!

  • Trailer Park Boys is unequivocally one of the most hilarious shows of all time. It is, of course, a pretty absurd show set in a Canadian trailer park.
