Join a Mines alumni interest group to learn about industry-focused opportunities and stay connected with others from the alumni, faculty and student communities. Whether you’re interested in the latest news at Mines, connecting with faculty, networking and attending events or sharing your expertise, there are many ways to get involved.

The newly formed Aerospace Interest Group kicked off its inaugural event, Trajectories 2017: Refuel your Aerospace Network on September 8. More than 150 students, alumni, faculty and professionals in the aerospace industry were in attendance to network and learn, co-hosted by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics—Rocky Mountain Section. In addition to networking, four speakers gave short, inspirational presentations that included: The Lunar Cycle by Dr. Laoucet Ayari, Orion: NASA’S Deep Space Exploration Program by Charles Lundquist, Boom Supersonic: Building the First Economical Commercial Supersonic Airliner by Erin Fisher, and Space Resources by Dr. Angel Abbud-Madrid.
