Air Force veteran turned engineer lands NASA internship

Kristopher Maham’s life as a college student is anything but traditional.

He is a U.S. Air Force veteran, husband, father of two girls and a first-time undergraduate student at the age of 37 in Arizona State University’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. Now he is further distinguishing himself through a prestigious internship with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Maham, an electrical engineering student, will spend one semester each year interning on-site at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida for the duration of his undergraduate studies.

“I enrolled at ASU because of the reputation the Pat Tillman Veterans Center has for transitioning vets back to civilian and student life,” said Maham. He also knew the Fulton Schools’ programs are highly rated.

Arizona State University serves student veterans

Why does ASU consistently rank among the top universities for veterans? We think it’s because we are committed to students reaching their academic goals, and we have staff and services specifically focused on student veteran success.

ASU student veterans unscripted

When you attend ASU as a veteran, you receive support through every step toward graduation. In their own words, student veterans share why they chose to be Sun Devils and what makes ASU so military friendly.

Arizona State University is proud to serve our military veterans and their dependents as they undertake the pursuit of their educational goals. The Pat Tillman Veterans Center honors the legacy of its namesake by providing a quality resource where our Sun Devil veterans can gather, find assistance, and receive the support necessary to ensure their success within the ASU community.
