UBC AeroDesign is a place where team members can take classroom knowledge and apply them  to real world practices. As the team is entirely student led, junior members learn all skills and practices through senior members. In return, senior members gain valuable project management skills and experience using the engineering design process.
UBC AeroDesign is open to all UBC undergraduate and graduate students of all disciplines and faculties. It is a great opportunity for first year students to explore their interest in engineering and aviation, and for senior students to apply their knowledge.
​​As a member of the team, you would:

  • Gain designing, prototyping, testing and building experience
  • Gain team work, communication, leadership and project management skills
  • Make new friends and industry connections
  • Gain student team experience that is often mandatory for Co-op recruiting companies
You would learn about:
  • The Design Process and fundamental theories of flight (i.e. Ground School)
  • CAD  with SolidWorks
  • Materials and construction knowledge 
  • Analytical flow simulation using programs like MATLAB, ANSYS, and XFLR5
  • Electrical power systems knowledge
In new members, we look for:
  • Friendly attitude and a team work mentality
  • Interest in airplanes and the aerospace industry
  • Outstanding long term commitment to the team
  • Ability to work effectively, meet deadlines, and willingness to step up
