Hello! Welcome to AIAA@Mines, the Colorado School of Mines chapter of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

We are a professional organization seeking to educate the Mines community about the benefits of aerospace and inspire people through involvement in aerospace-related projects. AIAA@Mines supports a network of interested students by providing opportunities for members to develop their leadership, networking, and professional skills.

AIAA@Mines believes in a space-faring and aviation/aerospace-forward civilization and that focusing the enthusiasm of young people toward this goal is the key to humanity’s future in aerospace.

Our goals this year include:

  • Increasing the participation and retention of underrepresented groups in aerospace.
  • Fostering communication between prospective aerospace students and industry professionals.
  • Promoting the development of critical skills in teamwork, communication, and aerospace engineering design.
