Oregon State to Host AIAA Regional Conference

Oregon State University will host the prestigious American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Region VI Student Conference 2016.  The conference, scheduled for April 1-3, 2016, covers eight states with 16 sections in the western US including Alaska and Hawaii.  Several students from OSU have attended the past four sessions, and graduate students from Dr. Roberto Albertani’s Applied Mechanics and Composites Technology Lab won “best graduate paper” in two of the past three years.  The student conference offers paper-competition categories for undergraduate, master’s, team and community outreach categories. For more information please link to https://region6.aiaastudentconference.org or contact the conference Chair, Emma Fraley, at fraleye@oregonstate.edu.

AIAA Student Club Networks with Aircraft Company, Lancair International

Lancair International opened its doors to 17 Oregon State engineering students last month for a facilities tour of their Redmond, Ore., site.  The kit company helps their clients in designing and building non-commercial private air crafts, allowing the flexibility of new technologies and innovative design in all their products. The students examined a variety of the testing and production methods that the company uses, and had the chance to visit the company's advanced composite structures lab.
