University of Michigan graduate Sydney Hamilton (BSAE ‘13) has been selected to be made into a life-size, 3-D printed statue as part of the “IfThenSheCan” exhibit at the Dallas NorthPark Center. The exhibit will feature over 120 statues of prominent women in STEM, as part of an effort by Lydia Hill Philanthropies to empower current female leaders and inspire young girls everywhere to pursue careers in STEM.
After completing her undergraduate Aerospace Engineering degree at the University of Michigan, Hamilton earned her Masters in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Southern California. She has worked at the Boeing Company for the past 6 years where she is currently a Mechanical Systems Engineer for Space and Launch. While at Michigan, Hamilton was involved with Professor Carlos Cesnik’s Active Aeroelasticity and Structures Research Laboratory with her work on the Experimental High-Altitude Long-Endurance (XHALE) aircraft. She was also an International Programs in Engineering Peer Advisor.
Congratulations to Sydney Hamilton on such a momentous achievement and for continuing to inspire young female STEM hopefuls everywhere!
