Aero Assist – The Graduate Student Organization for AAE at Purdue

Aero Assist is the graduate student organization for the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Purdue University. All graduate students within the School are automatically members. Aero Assist oversees the Research Symposium Series, the Graduate Mentor Program, and helps to keep graduate students in the School up to date with all the important and relevant events and deadlines. Program activities include recreational sports, tailgates, and other activities to improve the graduate student experience in the School. A committee of ten graduate students serves as the leadership team of Aero Assist.

Graduate Aerospace Website

Over the course of the next semester the aerospace department is going to be updating the section of their website devoted to graduate students.  While there are many objectives in this task, one of them is to make the site more functional for current students.  This will likely include things like a clearer layout of graduation requirements, better descriptions which classes apply where, and many other additions.

For this update Aero Assist will help in being a conduit for student input and suggestions.  If you have any thoughts or comments to add on the project help us out by going to the following form:

Graduate Website Suggestions

This form will be open for a while, so if something pops in to your head a couple weeks from now come back and let us know.  Thanks for your help!

Each fall Purdue Aero Assist helps organize a mentorship program to aid new graduate students in the trying adjustment to graduate school.  This program relies heavily on student mentors, and we are now looking for volunteers.  That means you! (assuming you’re a current Purdue Aerospace grad student).

If you have interest contact Sam Alberts ( and let her know your area of focus and advisor.

If you’re an incoming student who is ahead of the game by looking at this site know that sign ups will be out soon.  If it helps you sleep better, I bet you can e-mail Sam anyways and she’ll get you on a list.

Aero Assist, New For 2013-14!

It’s finally the end of the school year.  For many research involved grad students that actually doesn’t signal much, but there is one big change: a new Aero Assist Executive Committee!  Over the next few days we’ll be updating the website to reflect the new members, and beginning to plan exciting events as Aero Assist has always done.

One of the major goals we’re working on is getting even more people involved with the events that we have, and encourage interaction and feedback.  In those lines, we’re joining the social media world, so follow us on Twitter or Facebook to get updates and talk back!
