ONES TO

WATCH What made you want to pursue a career in unmanned systems? I wanted to pursue a career in unmanned systems to give people time to work on bigger and better things. The more time people have to learn about the world, the more we can make it a better place. What sparked your interest to be involved in a RoboNation competition? I saw some of the videos of what the teams did and was super inspired to create like that. I wanted to make something that was unlike anything else in the competition.

Tyler Gragg University Attended: Kennesaw State University Anticipated Graduation: Spring 2019 Tyler Gragg competed in RoboNation’s RoboSub competition in San Diego in 2017 as a member of the KSU team. He also has been working with a robotic hand project, using it to promote STEM education and as a “fun talking point to show people how cool engineering can be.”

What advice would you give those pursuing a degree in unmanned systems? The advice I’d give to someone wanting to work in unmanned systems is to start now. Start making projects now, the internet is a wonderful resource to get ideas and get connected. Think big, and make it. What are your future plans? Future plans for me range from doing a master’s program in Canada in nanotechnology to starting my own engineering company, something like opening my own Makerspace or something like that.
