The Yang Aero Maker Space

Students and faculty working on various pieces of equipment in the Aero Maker Space lab

What is the Yang Aero Maker Space?

Quite simply, it's a place where students and faculty can use a variety of equipment to build prototypes that advance their research - and their curiosity. In 2018, the AE School's Aero Maker Space was renamed the Yang Aero Maker Space in honor of the previous School Chair, Dr. Vigor Yang, who supported and funded the creation of the lab.

Who We Are

It's not like any other lab. The Yang Aero Maker Space is run by specially trained students, Aero Maker Space Mentors, and staff who supervise the safe and proper use of all equipment and train others in the same.
