Under the leadership of Professor Granzeier and Professor Netzel 36 students from the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences/ Department of Automotive and Aeronautical Engineering listened to a presentation at the office of GACC California in San Diego. The speakers, including Peggy Fleming, focused on Southern California as one of the leading hightech hotspots in aviation. The visit was part of a three-week excursion to major Aviation and Automotive companies, production facilities and museums in various U.S. cities such as Washington D.C. and Detroit. This is the 11th time Professor Granzeier and his faculty organize such a trip, an effort which the students clearly seemed to appreciate.
