About Us

Aero McGill is a shared platform for all aerospace engineering design teams at McGill. We provide the organizational frameworks, mentoring, and tools, as well as 100% of the funding for design teams that we accept in our society. One reason for the previous lack of aerospace design teams was the difficulty in starting a new team from scratch. With Aero McGill, students interested in starting a new project can skip the process of starting and promoting a team, acquiring initial funding, gaining official status at McGill, and finding resources for design, manufacturing, and testing. This gives the design teams more time to spend designing their actual projects. We hope to expand the current group of design teams to include all three SAE Aero Design East competitions (Micro, Regular, Advanced) as well as Unmanned Systems Canada’s Student Unmanned Aircraft System design competition. All design teams bear the Aero McGill’s branding, projecting a unified and collaborative image to the McGill community at large.

At Aero McGill we encourage the development of professional and engineering skills that match industry standards to cultivate a learning experience that extends beyond the reach of any classroom.
