The Aerospace Department is home to both the AIAA and SGT student organizations.
It is also the home for other local Aerospace organizations such as AHS.
American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics
The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) is the professional society for aerospace engineering. Here at the University of Maryland, AIAA has one of the largest and most active student branches on the east coast. We offer students interested in the aerospace field a chance to meet other students with similar interests, the opportunity to hear aerospace-related guest speakers, and to participate in a variety of activities.
Sigma Gamma Tau
Founded in 1953, Sigma Gamma Tau is the honor society for Aerospace Engineering. It seeks to identify and recognize achievement and excellence in the Aerospace field. Sigma Gamma Tau's affiliate chapters elect annually to membership chapters those students, alumni, and professionals who by conscientious attention to their studies or professional duties uphold this high standard for the betterment of their profession. Sigma Gamma Tau currently has more than 14,000 inducted members.
Graduate Student Advisory Committee
The GSAC is an informal group of graduate students from each of the 5 major focus areas in the Aerospace Engineering Department at the University of Maryland. The committee was formed in the Fall 2012 semester in response to the requests of graduate students and department faculty, and seeks to foster camaraderie, growth and success among the graduate student body.
