On the technical activities level of Aerospace and Electronics Systems Society (AESS), it is imperative to appreciate the dynamic relationship that exists between our society and the industries pursuing our fields of interest. Our members are pursuing careers that are often supported directly by their employers. Industry is responsible for understanding the need for technological advancement, pursuing and supporting research of science and technology, and developing initiatives for applications and new product development to meet the demands of the world. While historically, Industry Relations across IEEE has been focused on membership development, it seems natural and appropriate now that AESS pursue relationships with industry that are more collaborative in nature, with the goals of enhancing the nature of technological development, assessing the impact of such development in our environments, and providing our members with an increased ability to become more engaged in the profession. This collaboration would establish two-way communication and conversation: demonstrating the capabilities of AESS products and functions within our industries; and listening and understanding where industry is pursuing their business initiatives that require technological development.
Our vision is to develop and enhance collaborative and cooperative relationships with major aerospace and electronic systems industries in order to build and support the full, dynamic careers of our industry practitioners, with specific focus on encouraging and enabling young professionals.
AESS Vice President, Industry Relations
