Get Involved

PSAS has members with diverse backgrounds. To participate in PSAS activities, you DO NOT have to be a PSU student. Whether you're a high school or university student looking to get into the Aerospace industry or a retired engineer looking to help mentor the next generation of students, PSAS welcomes all.

PSAS is an ALL-VOLUNTARY group, no obligations necessary.

Getting Involved

  • The BEST WAY to become involved with PSAS is to crash one of our regular Tuesday 7pm General Meetings. Check the Calendar below for links.

  • Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedIn

  • OMG SIGN ME UP If you know for sure you want to join, then send a blank email to aerospace+join@pdx.edu; you'll get a whole bunch of instructions on how to sign up, get on Slack, and begin onboarding.

  • Not Local, No Problem! Contact us directly at aerospace@pdx.edu and we'll get you into our meetings. You can check the calendar below for details on specific meetings PSAS holds.

  • Familiar with GitHub.... Awesome! Look through some of the issues on the PSAS GitHub. There's lots to do !

A great way to get involved is to attend one of our many many many meetings. You're welcome to hang out and see what's going on, and you can always chat up any members of PSAS (there's quite a few). PSAS members are super friendly and love to discuss what they are working on. They can also point you in the right direction if you are looking to become involved with a specific project under PSAS.

Every Tuesday Night @ 7PM in Portland State University's Fourth Avenue Building (FAB) in room 86-01, PSAS holds a General Meeting. For more details, click on a meeting in the Google Calendar below.

If you would like a more formal "on-boarding" introduction to PSAS, we hold a New Member Orientation meeting at the Start of Each quarter. Search the Google Calendar for New Member Orientation meetings. New Member Orientation meetings are a great event for those interested in PSAS and thinking of joining. These meetings will give you an overview of the group, sub-groups, projects, PSAS goals, and help to figure your fit within PSAS.

New Member Orientation

Here's the last new member orientation meeting we had. If you can't make the next one easily or you just missed it (2nd Tuesday of every quarter) then listen in on this one!
