Jorge Hernandez has a BS in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M University, MS in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University, and a JD specializing in Corporate Law from the University of Houston. He has over 23 years of experience in structural design and analysis support to the Space Shuttle and International Space Station Program, as well as, twelve-plus years experience in management and financial aspects of aerospace and oil and gas tasks, projects, and critical business elements. Jorge is recognized and has a proven track record in managing, organizing, and administrating high caliber design teams in both the aerospace and subsea oil and gas sector.
Leveraging this personal expertise, Jorge Hernandez founded Bastion Technologies Inc.
