2019 Symposium

This two-day local aerospace conference in September 2019 brings together the important innovators, researchers, and engineers – such as yourself – from all across the Southeastern United States, and shines a light on the technical challenges we all work to surmount each day. All professionals are invited to submit an abstract.

Presentations are anticipated to range from general engineering activities to ground-breaking research. We also welcome presentations about career-experiences, such as a new alternate technique, an improved process flow, or an important project milestone.
