In his spare time, Graeme Crawford plays Frisbee. For his day job, he works with slightly larger flying things, like F-35 jet fighters and helicopters.
Crawford is graduating at Fall Convocation 2018 with an MBA, following on the heels of an engineering degree (BSME/12) that spawned a job in the aerospace sector. He currently leads a team a StandardAero that is relocating three engine manufacturing lines from British Columbia to Winnipeg.
He explains: “Through the engineering co-op program at the U of M, I leveraged my mechanical engineering degree to get a position at Magellan Aerospace developing testing procedures on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program. Just prior to starting my MBA, I took on an engineering management role in the StandardAero turboprops division, managing Pratt and Whitney engine lines.”
