American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics AIAA is the hub of all things aerospace at Miami, including design  projects and competitions, workshops, professional events, tours, and  Aerospace-related social events. We design, build, and fly radio-controlled  aircraft and model rockets in the names of fun and learning. Anyone with  the slightest interest in airplanes, rockets, or space travel can contact  us at Advisor: Dr. James VanKuren (

American Society of Mechanical Engineers

American Society of Mechanical Engineers The American Society of Mechanical Engineers is a group designed to promote the interaction of students in engineering through design projects, tutoring, and assistance with career advancement. Advisor: Dr. Andrew Sommers (

MME Student Leadership Council

SLC represents the broader spectrum of the Manufacturing Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Engineering Management student body. The purpose of the council is to provide a mechanism for students to give constructive feedback on their educational experience. This partnership helps the department to communicate closely with the students, to learn first hand about the students' needs and concerns and to gain invaluable insight into their perception of the program. SAC is the group responsible for planning Engineering Week activities as well as other social activities for MME majors. Advisor: Dr. Tim Cameron (

Redhawk Racing | Baja

Miami University Baja fulfills the senior capstone requirement for engineering students. Each year seniors, with the assistance of several underclassmen, design and construct a rugged, off-road vehicle to compete in an international competition through the Society of Automotive Engineers. The competition features various dynamic events - traction, maneuverability, and suspension - as well as a four-hour endurance race. Miami enters the competition each year with the goal of achieving a top ten finish! Advisor: Karl Reiff (

Redhawk Racing | Formula Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE)

The Formula SAE team works to custom design and fabricate a race car. The group is divided into four cohesive groups that work together to bring the car to completion. The four groups are Suspension, Chassis, Drive Chain, and Business. Advisor: Karl Reiff (
