The Vanderbilt Aerospace Club was set up in 2007 by Professor Amrutur Anilkumar to meet the emerging needs of Vanderbilt engineering students to pursue careers and advanced studies in aerospace engineering. Its main agenda is to design unique rocket-flyable payload systems that highlight major challenges in Space Exploration, and Energy Conversion as applicable to the Aerospace Sector. It also has a robust outreach program that works to build STEM enthusiasm in aerospace engineering among middle and high school students in Tennessee. The club's membership consists of engineering upperclassmen who participate in the School of Engineering's Senior Design Project, engineering graduate students whose research is allied to aerospace engineering, and some engineering lowerclassmen with a demonstrated interest in aerospace engineering. Vanderbilt students who have a passion for educational outreach are also part of its membership. The current function of the club is to compete in the NASA Student Launch Competition, and to present the project results at AIAA Student Conferences, and in select AIAA Journals. The Aerospace Club also represents the AIAA Student Chapter at Vanderbilt University
