Activites

AIAA promotes professional development for AE majors as well as ME majors with an interest in space and aeronautics.  Our AIAA Chapters competes in several design competitions, including Design/Build/Fly and the NASA-sponsored Hybrid Rocket programs, and also supports design teams AeroGators and Liquid Propulsion Development Team.  Our AIAA students also participate in the AIAA Regional Conferences and the Congressional Visit Day programs. The 2020 Region II Conference will be hosted at the University of Alabama in April 2020.
