Student Organizations

Aero Mavericks (AeroMavs)

AeroMavs consists of 20+ primarily mechanical and aerospace undergraduate students. As a team, they compete in two annual “Design, Build, Test, Fly” style events, including SAE Aero Design and IREC. In addition to competitions, they participate in various K-12 outreach events, including Engineering Saturday, where they are one of the most popular events. The AeroMavs also engage in various professional networking events and has formed close relationships with local SAE and SFTE sections.

AHS Student Chapter

The AHS International UT Arlington Chapter belongs to the premier professional organization for Vertical Lift Technology. This includes military and civilian helicopters, tilt-rotors, tilt-wings, VTOL aircraft, and UAV's. The chapter at UT Arlington is the oldest in the nation, initiated in 1967. It was re-initiated in 2016 by Amber Zuehl, and since then has toured Bell Helicopter, had professional speakers, volunteered at STEM outreach events, and had members attend forums. Members have gained knowledge in this field of engineering, and have had several opportunities to highlight their college career with volunteering and networking outside of pure academics. There are no dues required; members of AHS are automatically members of the UTA Chapter once they contact the recruitment officer.

AIAA

AIAA is the world's largest technical society dedicated to the global aerospace profession. Any student interested in joining the UTA AIAA Student Chapter should download contact a current UTA AIAA officer at uta.aiaa@gmail.com, and prepare an annual $10 student membership fee. All members should look over the Constitution and Bylaws prior to entry into the Organization.
