Activites

AIAA promotes professional development for AE majors as well as ME majors with an interest in space and aeronautics.  Our AIAA chapter competes in several design competitions, including Design/Build/Fly and the NASA-sponsored Hybrid Rocket programs.  Our AIAA students also participate in the AIAA Regional Conferences and the Congressional Visit Day programs. The 2015 Region II Conference will be hosted by UF in Savannah, GA.
