Evan Everett, a graduate of Auburn University’s wireless engineering program, has been named the state of Alabama’s Outstanding Co-op Student of the Year at the Alabama Association of Colleges and Employers annual summer conference, held recently in Mobile.

Everett co-oped for four semesters at NASA’s Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Houston, where he worked with electromagnetic systems, autonomous guidance navigation and control branches. He also served as a co-op representative to the NASA Engineering Academy advisory board.

Everett graduated summa cum laude in May with a double major in engineering and physics. He will begin doctoral study in computational electromagnetics at Rice University this fall while continuing to co-op with NASA. Everett conducted undergraduate research on the coplanar waveguide probe and was a participant in the Auburn University student space program. A member of Tau Beta Pi, Pi Sigma Pi and Eta Kappa Nu honor societies, he also served as treasurer of Auburn’s Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers student chapter.
