Aerospace Student Advisory Committee

This committee is designed to provide the aerospace engineering department staff and students with a group of volunteers who act as a median between the two bodies.

ASAC consists of aerospace engineering students from diverse backgrounds, experiences and interests. They meet regularly and take input from other aerospace engineering students on ideas for improving the department. Town hall meetings of the aerospace department are also an integral part of the connection between department and students. These meetings give you a chance to meet with your peers and get your suggestions to the staff and faculty. We hold these meetings every semester and encourage all students to come with ideas for the department. Food is provided! Watch for emails within the department.

Other ways to make your voice heard include:

  • Surveys sent via email
  • Suggestion boxes located around the FXB
  • Communication with ASAC members

Your comments and concerns will be discussed by ASAC and brought to the appropriate party so actions may be taken.

Peer advising is a key part of ASAC’s mission. Stop by to learn about specific courses, professors or the department in general. Please see below for a description of all members and choose the member that most fits your interests/needs for advising. Email us to make an appointment.
