AE Day 2019 Banner

The 2019 AE Day took place on Friday, March 1, 2019 at Dynetics-Solution Complex in Huntsville, Alabama.

The purpose of AE Day is to initiate and nurture a regular dialog between Auburn Aerospace Engineering Faculty and Government/Industry Representatives located in the Huntsville area. This is envisioned as an annual event where attendees will not only learn about the cutting edge research taking place at Auburn University, but also have the opportunity to provide feedback to help guide the future direction.

The attendees of AE Day are engineers, scientists, managers, alumni, and anyone with a technical interest in Auburn University Aerospace Engineering.
