AIAA UNL Student Chapter

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics student branch at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln was started in 2008. The purpose of the branch is to encourage students to learn more about aerospace news, history, education and careers, and to provide opportunities for students to participate in aerospace projects and design competitions.
