Our chapter consists of four main committees, through which our members carry out the ideals of the national organization.

While we are primarily composed of Aerospace Engineering majors, we welcome any student that has a passion for the exploration of the aerospace and aeronautic world.

With over 100 members and counting, we continue to prove that the University of Michigan AIAA Chapter is indeed filled with the "Leaders and Best."
