Participants at AIAA Forum

Events & Learning

Shaping the future of aerospace takes passion, discussion, innovation, collaboration, and, most importantly, it takes YOU!

AIAA forums and expositions are catalysts for inspired idea exchange, progressive problem solving, and industry innovation. Continuing Education courses at AIAA forums are carefully selected for their technical relevance to that event. Courses feature lectures and demonstrations with ample opportunity to ask questions and interact with the instructors and fellow students.

We offer year-round events, courses, workshops, and online learning opportunities for our members and the aerospace community.
