The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) is the world’s largest technical society dedicated to the global aerospace profession. The purpose of AIAA is to celebrate aerospace ingenuity and get students excited about careers in aerospace and astronautics. As the student chapter of AIAA and the University of New Mexico, our mission is to address interests of past, current, and future aerospace workforce. We aim to encourage bright engineering students with a passion for flight; we do this through lectures, guest presenters and exploring the history of New Mexico’s premier national laboratories and military bases.
