Welcome to the AIAA chapter at the University of Illinois at Chicago

The AIAA (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics) chapter at the University of Illinois at Chicago is a student run organization located in Region III. It is primarily dedicated to the study of aerospace and propulsion engineering.  The club was formed in 2011. The University of Illinois at Chicago does not currently have an aerospace engineering major for undergraduate students, which makes the organization a great place to gain experience in that field. The AIAA chapter is separated into three main teams: Rocketry, Quadcopter, and Design Build Fly. Each of the team provides a hand-on experience in designing, prototyping, and constructing either high powered rockets, quadcopters, or controlled aircrafts.

OUR branches

Our Organization Consists Primarily of Three Branches

DESIGN/BUILD/FLY

We design, build, and fly unmanned aircrafts for competitions. Our team is divided into four subgroups: Aerodynamics, Design, Proptronics, and Structures.

QUADcOPTER

We design and make quadcopters for competitions then watch our creations go head to head against other schools and see which one them was better designed!

ROCKETRY

We make rockets not only for fun but also for competitions that we travel the country to participate!

WE LIVE TO INNOVATE

When it comes to technology we love to innovate.  Sometimes in the field parts are not always available. This is where inspiration plus necessity equals innovation.
