The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Club is the only club at Stony Brook University with a focus on aerospace engineering. The aerospace field is large and thriving, growing in interest and popularity, which is why this club was created. Despite the fact that Stony Brook University does not currently offer a major in aerospace engineering, our first president, Matthew Lee, sent out an interest form at the beginning of the Fall 2016 semester and got a great amount of positive feedback. Matthew started working in the summer of 2016 to start this club, and with the help of the rest of our founding members, we were able to successfully create Stony Brook University's AIAA Chapter.
The purpose of this club is to unify students interested in aerospace engineering. Since the aerospace industry doesn't inhabit too much of Long Island, we're hoping that, by getting speakers, working on projects, holding/going to events, and encouraging our members to get their foot in the door of the aerospace field, we will be able to give everyone some experience and insight into the aerospace field and motivate everyone to continue down the path of aerospace engineering.
