Who We Are

The purpose of Women in Aerospace (WiA) is to empower women through providing all undergraduate students with inclusive educational, outreach, professional, and social opportunities in the Aerospace Engineering (AAE) major at Purdue. WiA strives to address the gender disparity in Aerospace Engineering by creating a diverse community for all those considering and currently enrolled in AAE. We focus on the three I's: to Inspire K-12 students and first year engineering students to pursue an aerospace career, to Inform our members of opportunities through educational events and industry spotlights, and to Integrate and connect the community of AAE through networking and social events. 

While our name reflects the majority of our membership, we recognize that diversity includes everyone, regardless of race, gender, religion, political party, or sexual orientation. Therefore, WiA aims to be an organization where people of all backgrounds can come together and share the one thing we have in common: our love of aerospace!
