Exploiting nascent technologies
for aerospace and
Research for the
Future of Flight
bridging the missing links
towards the future of flight
BARC Research consists of interconnected scientific and technology foci from robotics to digital engineering for researching into the future of flight.
An overarching problem space in aerospace systems guides the BARC scientific exploration and research development.
More than 100 students have worked on Boeing research projects at UW.
More than twenty five BARC graduates have been hired by Boeing.
Other BARC graduates have been employeed at high-impact organizations such as Amazon, Blue Origin, General Motors, Google, Indian Institutes of Technology, Meta, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Zipline.
Research stemming from BARC projects have been showcased five times in the Boeing Technical Excellence Conference (BTEC), resulting in four ‘BEST of BTEC’ awards!
