AIAA promotes professional development for AE majors as well as ME majors with an interest in space and aeronautics through information sessions, tours, guest speakers, community outreach events, professional workshops, industry technical talks and other programming. Our AIAA Branch 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 Branch also participates in the AIAA Regional Student Conferences. The 2020 Region II Conference will be hosted at the University of Alabama in April.
