California State University, Northridge - Aero Senior Design Team 2022-2023

Mission Statement - 

CSUN Aeronautics strives to build the foremost aircraft to the team’s ability in order the compete in the international SAE competition. The main objective is to design a suite of systems that can support the Fight against wildfires through the delivery of water and parts for a ground vehicle. Our team is focused on mission success through understanding of diverse requirements, system-level engineering, and robust execution.


Vision Statement - 

We aspire to create opportunities for our students to grow as engineers in and out of the classroom. CSUN Aeronautics is not only a senior design project that focuses on building an aeronautic vessel amongst its team members but also incorporates undergraduate students as volunteers. Our team hopes to continue to inspire other students to volunteer for this project and grow real world experiences by becoming involved in decision making, designing, and manufacturing.
