Welcome to the AIAA Student Chapter at UC Irvine



The mission of the AIAA Student Chapter at UC Irvine is to promote activities and participation in aeronautics and astronautics amongst undergraduate engineering students, and to help the students pursue opportunities for successful careers with leadership positions in aerospace engineering in academia, industry, or government.




The AIAA (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics), and its predecessors, has been the principal society of the aerospace engineer and scientist for more than 70 years.
