ENDICOTT, NY – A recent U-E grad is calculating plans for the future with the help of B-A-E.

Abbadessa has an interest engineering with a passion for math and science.
“I was completely honored because BAE Systems is a respected engineering firm throughout the community. I always drive by going to school and always see the big building while the workers are going in and out and it means a lot coming from a local place that recognizes a student that wants to pursue a dream like they are,” says Abbadessa.
Abbadessa plans to attend Cornell University in the fall with the long term goal of a Masters in Bio Medical Engineering.
