In our last issue, we told you how for many at the College, this is the time to take leave and slow life down a little.

As 15595 Dr. Billy Allan, Head of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department, pointed out to us, the summer months are one of the busiest times of the year for the Academic Wing. In many ways, once the students leave, the “real” work begins as professors finally have the time to focus on research and other pursuits.

“Some times the “dog days of summer” are sled-dogs in the traces,” said Dr. Allan.
