EUROAVIA is the European Association of Aerospace Students. It is established in 1959 and up to now counts more than 40 Affiliated Societies, in 20 countries of Europe for a total of more than 2000 members. It’s a volunteering, non-profit organization that consists only of students interested in aerospace engineering and generally the field of mechanical engineering.
EUROAVIA ATHENS is the Affiliated Society that is based in Athens and was founded in 2006. It is supported by the National Technical University of Athens (N.T.U.A.) and most of its members are students from the School of Mechanical Engineering. Nevertheless, taking into account the wide variety of EUROAVIA’s activities, student with different academic background, who are interested in aerospace, are also welcome to join.
EUROAVIA Athens participated in the international competition “Air Cargo Challenge” in 2017 and took the 14th position amongst 28 participants.
Our office is in the building of Aerodynamics of the Mechanical Engineering school and at the parking beneath the central square of N.T.U.A..
EUROAVIA Athens contributes to the development and promotion of the field of Aerospace Engineering in Greece.
This is accomplished through various activities like:
- The construction of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) with a wingspan of 4.5 meters according to the regulations of Air Cargo Challenge.
- The organization of visits and guided tours to the facilities of companies that operate in the field of Aerospace and Aeronautics Engineering.
- The organization of international events and symposiums with the participation of members of EUROAVIA from all over Europe.
- The presence of the association in international symposiums and events in order to interact and communicate with members of other Affiliated Societies of EUROAVIA and learn more about the aerospace industry in Europe.
- The participation in local scientific events in which we inform the general public about our organization and its activities.
The primary goal of our association is the connection of our members with the aerospace industry. We manage to achieve this goal by organizing visits to companies that are relevant to the field and lectures by professionals. Moreover, we aim to successfully take part in local and European competitions and acquire knowledge and experience. We, also, participate in science festivals and International Events in order to inform the general public and members of other Affiliated Societies about our activities in Greece and promote N.T.U.A. and our country.
To Air Cargo Challenge είναι ένας διεθνής φοιτητικός διαγωνισμός αεροναυπηγικής. Οι ομάδες που συμμετέχουν καλλούνται να μελετήσουν, να σχεδιάσουν και να κατασκευάσουν ένα μη επανδρωμένο τηλεκατευθυνόμενο αεροσκάφος το οποίο έχει σκοπό να άρει το μέγιστο δυνατόν φορτίο ακολουθώντας μία συγκεκριμένη διαδρομή.
