Industry Relations

You are here

Aerospace and Electronics Systems Society (AESS) members working in Industry and Government Agencies are engaged daily in addressing and satisfying the many diverse needs of the larger community and indeed the world.  They must stay up-to-date on accepted practice in their fields of expertize, and they must remain open to new and emerging methods.  Our industry practitioners devote significant time and energy to stay current and to develop informed, balanced points of view. AESS Industry Relations supports them by providing training and learning resources, especially for young professionals, and later also as members advance in their careers and are called upon to contribute to fields outside their original field of expertize and interest.  

Our industry practitioners are pursuing careers that are often supported directly by their employers.  We appreciate the dynamic relationship that exists between our society and the industries working in our fields of interest.  Consequently, AESS Industry Relations strives to develop and enhance cooperative relationships with major aerospace and electronic systems industries, with a specific focus on encouraging and enabling young professionals.  Working in conjunction with Industry partners, our efforts contribute measurably to improving Industry management goals including productivity, employee retention rates, and on-the-job satisfaction.  
AESS pursues dynamic relationships with Industry to encourage responsible technological and product development, and to undertake objective assessments of the impact of such developments on the larger community.  We spotlight new and on-going industry activities that may merit further investigation and development. We strive to provide our members with an increased awareness of our community of interest and an improved opportunity to broadly engage in the profession. 
Our vision is threefold:  
  • Membership development, training, and support
  • Lifelong member career development and Industry support
  • Spotlighting Industry activities and business announcements.  
To achieve these goals we promote dialog, as appropriate, not only by visiting corporations and but also by inviting selected Industry thought leaders to join us at selected AESS sponsored meetings.
