Congratulations to our award winners & participants for AeroConnect Challenge™ 2021!

The SAE Emerging Technology Series challenges universities to create a team of multi-disciplinary engineers to collaborate, design, present, and defend conceptual designs to industry professionals.

We had a phenomenal group of innovative thinkers and problem solvers who proposed dynamic solutions as part of AeroConnect Challenge™! This event was held in conjunction with the SAE AeroTech Digital Summit and award winners were announced on 3/11/21. AeroConnect Challenge™ would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors, Boeing and Collins AeroSpace, as well as the SAE Foundation.
