Latest Episode of Momentum

Momentum – February 2024: Paromita Mitra, ASE Alum

This month on Momentum, we talk with Paromita Mitra, an alumna with her master’s and bachelor’s degrees from the Department of Aerospace Engineering. She was also recently our guest speaker for Academic Insight, preview days for future engineering students.

Today, she works at NASA Johnson Space Center as an Avionics System Manager for NASA’s Artemis Program lunar rovers and spacesuits. Previously, she was Principal Investigator for a team of engineers building a heads-up display system for spacesuit helmets. Her research at MSU encompassed graphical displays, wearable technology, augmented reality, and human performance metrics. She has held positions working as an engineer on F-35 engines, designing Earth science satellites, and analyzing human psycho-physiology for software development. An immigrant from Dhaka, Bangladesh, Paromita represented the state of Mississippi at the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA pageants as Miss Mississippi USA 2013 and Miss Mississippi Teen USA 2009, where she traveled to spread awareness on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) literacy topics. Her passions include diversity in tech and issues of femininity in engineering.

Transformational Change – A Case Study with LaShan Hendrix

Athlete Engineering

Mississippi State’s athlete engineering program is rapidly gaining ground in the science of wearable technology and human assessment — a growing field that holds exciting potential for improving athletic performance and mitigating injuries.

As home of the one-of-a-kind Paul B. Jacob High Voltage Laboratory, Mississippi State University is preparing future engineers for a rapidly growing field that’s ripe for innovation.

In 2015, MSU’s Space Cowboys soared above all opponents at the international collegiate rocket competition, placing first out of 70 universities from seven countries. That’s makes them the best in the world and they’re still climbing.

Mississippi State was selected by the Federal Aviation Administration in 2015 as the National Center of Excellence for Unmanned Aircraft Systems. That means our teams are writing the flight plans for a new industry right on our MSU campus.

At Mississippi State University, the next generation of cybersecurity professionals is being trained at one of the country’s leading programs.

Learning is supersonic at Mississippi State University, where students have one of the world’s fastest academic supercomputer systems at their fingertips.

As one of the nation's leading research universities, MSU is driven to lead the way in innovative research, discover solutions to real-world problems, and ignite the futures of students from across the globe. We are ready for the future. We are the future.

Concussion Research

As a leader in integrated computational materials engineering, MSU stands at the forefront of research of mechanical responses for the brain under car crashes, football concussions and military explosions.

At Mississippi State, our award-winning teams are developing The Car of the Future: a lighter, more cost-effective hybrid featuring automatic torque vectoring for more precision driving, a lighter battery for optimized energy storage, a regenerative braking system, and technologies that lead to energy independence with no environmental impact.
