Student Rocketry

AIAA@NEU is a student run Aerospace organization at Northeastern University, founded in the Fall of 2012 by two students with a passion for aeronautics and astronautics. Our mission is to further the understanding of proper engineering techniques within our member base, while pushing the boundaries of what a university Aerospace organizaiton can accomplish. Ever since it's inception, AIAA@NEU has grown in numbers and aspirations. Organization members gain practical experience as they collaborate on a multitude of projects.

Project Karman

Space Race 2.0
Project Karman pursues the Karman Line (100km). If successful, Karman will make Northeastern University the first college to make it to space!

Manufacturing Capabilities

With access to 3D printers, laser cutters, a machine shop, and engineering toolkits, members can come up with innovative solutions to advanced engineering situations.
