Over a decade ago, Nick Alley used his Ph.D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering to create an aerospace defense technology company called Area-I, which designed and built unmanned aerial vehicles for the U.S. military and its allies.

Aggie Engineers Dot the Nation
Being an Aggie engineer isn’t just about studying in Cache Valley; it’s about making your mark in Puget Sound, Silicon Valley or the Beltway. And Utah State’s impact isn’t just nationwide — it’s worldwide. Thank you for representing your alma mater wherever your career has taken you!
Recently I visited with a retired Aggie engineer who made his career in Pullman, Washington. Listening to his energy and interest, you’d never know he’s well into his 90s. He and his family love USU and are eager to make the most of their investments by creating a generous scholarship for graduate students in the two colleges he and his wife graduated from — engineering and education.
To help engage alumni scattered across the nation, Tony Ahlstrom has joined the College of Engineering as a new development officer. He will be working with alumni from Southern California, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas. As an avid Aggie, he brings a passion for all things Utah State and is eager to connect with alumni.
