Waking up to rockets

By: Chardonnay Ismail


Cole Shubert is a 2019 graduate of the South Carolina Honors College. As a SpaceX test operator in Waco, Texas, this mechanical engineering grad gets to work with rockets every day.

Shubert applied for SpaceX "on a whim" but intends to remain in the aerospace industry and eventually assume a leadership role. He's worked on Space Force missions and the two crewed missions SpaceX has launched.

He credits his experience to what he learned in the College of Engineering and Computing and the resources he had in the Honors College.
