The AIAA Student Conference is a technical paper competition for AIAA student members at the undergraduate and graduate levels from regional campuses. Students are invited to submit technical papers and give formal presentations, which are judged for technical content and clarity of communication. Winners are awarded cash prizes and may advance to the AIAA Foundation International Student Conference, typically held the following January at the AIAA Aerospace Sciences Meeting & Exhibition Center in Reno, NV.

Many thanks to our faculty, staff and our students, especially conference co-chairs Bree McNerney and Nate Niles. The department wants to especially thank Dr. Alison Flatau, whose leadership, advisement and hard work ensured a successful conference.
