Welcome to the Aerospace Engineering Community!

We are replacing the former Association of Aerospace Universities (AAU) with a new, more community oriented group.

Join us on this new journey!






About AECUpcoming EventsProfilesJoin Us

We are in the midst of change at both global and local leve, and the Aerospace Engineering Community wishes to promote flexibity in how the aerospace academic (and non-academic as well) community meets, discusses and orients itself!

The Aerospace Engineering Community goal is to bring together as many aerospace academics from all over England to discuss, debate and create ideas and good practices for the british aerospace courses, students and industry.

We welcome all EPC members with an interest in aerospace to join us in this transformation and make this space a community for all!

6 December 2023 – Confirm your place!

The Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) and Engineering Professors’ Council (Aerospace Engineering Community) will be holding an Academic Forum on Wednesday 6 December at Coventry University.

We would be delighted for you to attend the forum which will provide opportunities for discussion on matters relating to accreditation, assessment and AHEP-4 mapping.  The RAeS will provide relevant updates and guidance on accreditation. You will also have an opportunity to share best practice with your academic peers on these matters.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

To be held online at 1100 British Summer Time on Friday 22nd October.
This will be followed by student presentations starting at 12 o’clock noon.
Zoom is probably the most likely video telepresence software platform we will be using, and the uniform resource locator will be made available asap. Please click to view the agenda.

The fifteenth International Conference of Multiphysics will be held virtually for the first time on 10-11 December 2020. The objective of the conference is to share and explore findings on mathematical advances, numerical modelling and experimental validation of theoretical and practical systems in a wide range of applications. Our Association has always sponsored the aerospace session in the past at zero cost.

Authors are invited to submit abstracts by 31 October 2020. For abstract submission, please visit http://www.multiphysics.org/conference

There is no registration fee.

The AAU/Aerospace Sectoral Group AGM will take place starting at 1200 on Friday 23rd October and will be a virtual event instead of a physical one that was going to be held at UWE. This year’s Annual Student Conference has been cancelled.
Please see the agenda here.

To be held at Al Ghurair University in Dubai from Saturday 14th – Sunday 15th December.

The aerospace sessions will be sponsored by the AAU as in the past.

The aviation industry is under transformation. New technologies are making flying faster, safer, less noisy and more sustainable. These innovations, however, require new skills. How can we equip the workers of tomorrow with the newest competences required by the market? And how do we generate pathways for the next generation to join this dynamic and essential sector for the UK?

We will address this and other questions during this landmark event, which will bring together major players across aerospace, education and government to collectively agree on a way forward for the creation of world-class UK Centres of Excellence for Aviation.

Join us on Wednesday, 9th October 2019 at 09:30 – 16:30 at the Novotel London Stansted Airport in Stansted.

To be held at the University of Hertfordshire. Follow links for more details and map.

The AAU Committee meeting (follow link for agenda) will take place in the morning followed by the free annual Universities Seminar (follow link for details) in room C1 in Geroge Begg Building at the University of Manchester, M13 9PL (follow link for map).

The aim of the seminar is to foster flight simulation in universities by bringing together all institutions with an interest in flight simulation to exchange information, encourage cooperation & collaboration between all interested parties.

All colleagues and students are strongly encouraged to participate and to consider offering to give a short presentation about some aspect of flight simulation in your department. If you would like to present, please email Barry Tomlinson: b.tomlinson110@btinternet.com
