Aero Assist holds a variety of events for graduate students. These events include weekly study breaks, social events, professional development and informative seminars, and guest lecturers and speakers.

See below for a list of our current events or check out our Facebook page!


2020 AAE Research Symposium Series (RSS) is calling for Abstracts!!

Aero Assist is continuing its series of professional development seminars this Spring 2020.  AAE Research Symposium is back with more presentations, more cash prizes, and more pizzas. (Well, we count on you for the presentations, but cash prizes and pizzas have already been secured through the generous support of the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics).


Please see the full Symposium webpage here: 

The Symposium is a great opportunity to learn about interesting projects going on in the department and share your own research with your peers. It’s also a great occasion to improve your presentation skills and receive feedback. And if that’s not enough to convince you, we have cash prizes available for the best presentations!

To register, please send us a short abstract (200 words max) and additional information here:

Registrations are open until Sunday March 1st, 11.59pm.

Looking forward to reading all your abstracts!
