The Aerospace Division's Technical Activity Committees have organised a programme of events for this year. Additional to these IMechE also co-sponsors events prepared by the other Aerospace Partners as well as other charitable organisations. In addition to the division's work, there are a whole host of other activities taking place near you. Here are just some aerospace activities that are taking place. To get your event listed, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Aerospace Division holds free, half-day events aimed at those beginning their career in aerospace engineering; they may just have started studying at university, may be embarking on an apprenticeship or enrolled in MPDS..
The Division established its first Regional Committee (the Western Aerospace Centre) in Bristol in October 2000 and was proud to launch its second (IMechE Aerospace North West) in May 2004. Look out for details of the next Annual Northern Aerospace Forum (ANAF) due to be held this October in Blackburn.
Schools Aerospace Challenge
