UPB Faculty of Aerospace Engineering has a tradition of participating in student contests in the fields of aeronautics and astronautics. We encourage the current students to engage in these activities.

All students who want to participate in student competitions as students of UPB-FAE are asked to announce their intention at inginerie.aerospatiala@upb.ro before registering.

This is necessary to avoid parallelisms and inter-blocking of student registration in official faculty teams. Some contests do not accept more teams from a university / faculty. Some do, but the logistic effort of the faculty to send two teams exceeds capacity, and sponsors are surprised by multiple overlapping sponsorship requests. In such situations, the faculty should organize an internal competition between teams or between students and to send the best positioned team or the team made of those students with the highest chances to win the competition.

Therefore, if there are more teams aiming at the same competition, they will present an activity plan for that participation and the rules of the competition. The Faculty management will appoint a committee to analyze the proposals and will select the team which will represent the faculty.

All sponsorship applications made by UPB-FAE students should be approved by the Faculty Executive Board (BEF). For every received sponsorship, the students should present a report to justify the use of the resources obtained by sponsorship. This will be presented to both the respective sponsor, and the BEF.

The prestigious student contests which have a registration deadline soon are the following:

AUVSI-SUAS 2020 – location: Patuxent, MD, USA, June 2020. Deadline: 1 November 2019, participation fee 1500 USD

NEW FLYING COMPETITION 2020 – location: Hamburg, Germany, Sept. 2020. Deadline: 31 October 2019, participation fee 1000 EUR

AIAA Design, Build, Fly – location: Whichita, KS, USA, aprilie 2020. Deadline: 31 Octomber 2019, participation fee N/A

In the same time we congratulate the students who will participate in Competion REXUS organized by the European Space Agency and we offer to them our support.
