Aerospace Clubs & Organizations
American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics
The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics is a national organization dating back over 70 years. Aerospace engineers founded the organization itself with the goal of promoting the field. Cal Poly Pomona club chapter accomplishes this goal by hosting company tours and speaker meetings, as well as keeping students in contact with industry. The organization also strives to help students in school by hosting tutoring sessions, movie nights, and other social events to help with student morale.
Cal Poly Pomona Unmanned Autonomous System Club
The Unmanned Autonomous Systems (UAS) club was created with the purpose of training students to work with UAS technologies by promoting a hands-on learning experience. Students are introduced to a variety of workshops and projects that are intended to enhance practical and technical skills that can be brought into real-world applications. For beginners, lessons are provided to give students the confidence and basic skills needed to engage in project teams. Students of all majors and backgrounds are encouraged to join the club and work together to develop the knowledge and appreciation for this ever-growing industry.
Sigma Gamma Tau
Qualified students are invited to join the student chapter of Sigma Gamma Tau, the aerospace engineering honor society.
The Undergraduate Missiles, Ballistics, and Rocketry Association (UMBRA) is one of the Aerospace Engineering Department opportunities for hands-on learning experience. The club concentrates on building up to twelve feet long rockets capable of reaching two miles altitude for national competitions such as NASA Student Launch, and for personal interests.
