NOTE: The following is part of an ongoing GT-AE series called "Five Things You Should Know" which extracts pearls of wisdom from friends and alumni of GT-AE who are working the multifaceted field of aerospace engineering. This installment was culled from a Jan. 23 visit by three very generous Lockheed Martin engineers: Dan O'Rourke, Julie Whitehead, and Jeff Baldino. The trio came to Georgia Tech as a part of the School of Aerospace Engineering's Student Advisory Council (SAESAC) Career Night.
