Dr. Robert Korkegi, a longtime visiting professor in the aerospace engineering department, has passed away. A memorial service will be held on September 17, 2008 at the Memorial Chapel on the University of Maryland campus starting at 2:00 p.m.

Bob was well known for his work on hypersonics and as a former director of the Von Karman Institute. He taught classes in our department for approximately 22 years, a fixture for ENAE 311 and 414. Bob served on numerous masters and doctoral thesis committees and conducted research in hypersonic aerodynamics. He served on numerous national and international advisory boards, and was also a Fellow of AIAA and a leader in the aerospace field.

The students, faculty, and staff give their condolences to the Korkegi family, and will undoubtedly miss Bob dearly as a friend and colleague.
