Dr. Hassan A. Hassan has enjoyed a productive career at NC State University. The College of Engineering professor has notched more than 200 publications in the aerospace field, served as principal investigator on countless research projects for NASA and others and received awards including the Alexander Quarles Holladay Medal for Excellence, the university’s highest faculty honor. He has taught a wide range of classes, and served as major adviser to 36 Ph.D. and 68 master’s students.
