Aerospace Research Engineering
The ASPiRE (Aerospace Research Engineering) team was founded in October 2017 by a group of students from the University of Western Macedonia. The common interests in aerospace applications, as well as the willingness to explore and learn unknown and different areas, have been the main reasons for it's creation. Since then, it is the official aerospace research team of the university. It is composed and recruits new members, mainly from the two polytechnic departments of the university (Faculty Of Engineering), the Department of Informatics & Telecommunications Engineering and the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
