Women in Aerospace Symposium


Attendees gather at a past MIT AeroAstro Women in Aerospace Symposium.

The Symposium, presented by MIT in conjunction with Stanford University, offers outstanding women doctoral and postdoctoral researchers a unique opportunity to present their work to, and network with, their colleagues, university faculty, and industry/government professionals.

The Symposium includes technical presentations, discussion with faculty, talks by leaders in the aerospace field, and panel discussions about academic careers. Participants will exchange views on the future of aerospace engineering, strengthen career-building networks, and learn about pursuing academic careers.

Presenters were selected through a competitive application process. They are women a year from, or up to two years following, receipt of their doctoral degree, and have an interest in pursuing a career in academia.
