Things to Do When You’re a Teleworking Aerospace Engineer or Aerospace Engineering Student

Many aerospace organizations are having their employees work from home to mitigate exposure to the coronavirus and keep communities, especially the most vulnerable members, safe and healthy. AIAA applauds and supports this decision.

We encourage everyone to follow the coronavirus safety guidelines set out by the WHO and CDC.

We understand you still have work to do and may be looking for new ways to connect while you telecommute. We can help.
