Dual math/engineering program alumna Lindsey Smith stays right on target at Cummins

Throughout college at Texas Woman's University and the University of North Texas, Lindsey Smith dedicated herself to her studies, getting ahead of the game with internships in production engineering, aviation, locomotives, and even a project with NASA, where she secured funding for her student team to work on a carbon-fiber rocket to be launched at the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. 

Smith earned her dual degree in mathematics and engineering from TWU/UNT and now works on manufacturing engineering teams at Cummins. Her next step is a six-month leave to attend military officer school with the National Guard at Fort Jackson, South Carolina. But after that, she'll be right back at Cummins in a new engineering role. 

Dual degree program alumna Lindsey Smith does it all

Lindsey Smith

A self-defined overachiever, Lindsey Smith graduated high school at only 17, and decided to pursue two degrees – one in mechanical and energy engineering at the University of North Texas and another in mathematics at Texas Woman’s University through the dual-degree program. Now, in a rotational leadership role as a manufacturing development program engineer at Cummins Inc., Smith is tackling her career with the same tenacity she had during college. Full story >>

Texas Aerospace Scholar and current NASA employee Emma Zemler on the Dual Degree program
