Who can become a EUROAVIA member?
In order to become a member, you have to be enrolled at a university as a student.
Post-graduate students are also accepted.
Is EUROAVIA a fraternity?
No, EUROAVIA is not a fraternity, despite similarities in the name. EUROAVIA Stuttgart is an officially licensed student organization.
Is a EUROAVIA-Membership free of charge? What does it cost to participate in the various events?
EUROAVIA events are usually financed by sponsors and thus free of charge. In rare cases, transportation or accommodation charges can apply.
A membership in EUROAVIA Stuttgart costs 10,23 € per semester.
I'm not a student of aerospace engineering. Can I also be a member of EUROAVIA?
Students of other courses are welcome anytime. In the development of technologies in the field of aerospace many different disciplines are involved. The fascination and passion brings us together.
Does EUROAVIA profit financially from its activities?
As a registered student organization, we are not allowed to make a financial profit. Therefore, all finances available to EUROAVIA Stuttgart are used to finance our various events.
Does it cause problems if I am not able to attend the regular meetings on wednesdays?
No, this will not cause any problems. You will be informed per e-mail about any matters of interest discussed at our weekly meetings.
In addition, you are welcome to visit us during our office hours between 4 and 5 pm on Wednesdays.
Are there any obligations attached to a EUROAVIA membership?
Any involvement in EUROAVIA is on a strictly voluntary basis. It is not obligatory to attend the weekly meetings, nor are you required to take part in the organization of our various events. However, we do give you the chance to gain valuable experience through by actively helping to shape the future of our organization. How far your involvement goes, however, is entirely up to you!
That being said, the only real obligation attached to a EUROAVIA-Membership is to pay your membership fee each semester.
What sort of reputation does EUROAVIA have in the engineering business?
Through our various contacts throughout the engineering business,
we have noticed that involvement in student organizations such as EUROAVIA
tends to leave a positive impression on throughout the corporate world.
EUROAVIA is known to many personnel departments throughout Europe.
Most of the events we host depend on successful cooperation with our various corporate partners.
Can only members participate in EUROAVIA events?
We organize our events mainly for EUROAVIA members.
However, should an event allow for more participants than we receive applications from members for,
the remaining places will, of course, be made available to non-members. We also organize events for the public in some occasions.
What happens when my studies are over? How can I become alumni?
All regular members of the association are automatically becoming alumni in case of de-registration or loss of post-graduate student status. Requirement for membership in the alumni program is a regular membership in the EUROAVIA during your studies. If you have no interest beeing a membership in our alumni program, you can disagree to the local board.
You can also make this contradiction at a later date, but its validation starts only with the receipt of the written revocation by the Board. See also §4 in our statutes.
What are the benefits of the Alumni program of EUROAVIA?
As a participant in the alumni program you are still benefitting from the large network of EUROAVIA and also have the opportunity to further on participate in EUROAVIA events. As part of fireside chats and other events (for example the annual, international alumni meeting) contact with old classmates and colleagues can be maintained easily. An ideal opportunity to share thoughts, ideas and suggestions. In addition, Alumni can continue to shape the experience of the young regular members by passing on valuable experience and knowledge.
How do I step out of the EUROAVIA again?
Your regular membership in the Association can be terminated by an exit at the end of each semester with a written 4-weekly notice beforehand. The withdrawal is made by a short, written statement to the Local Board of the association (also via e-mail to stuttgart[at]euroavia.de). Even though it is of course a pity for us, not having you as an active member in our union any longer, a membership is always voluntary and we will never force you to one. See also § 5 in our statutes.
What kind of events we organize, anyway?
EUROAVIA has many, often long-standing contacts with companies and associations at national and international level, through which a wide range of events can be offered to each local group. These range from exciting, sometimes multi-day excursions, interesting workshops, lectures and upgrade training courses to the annual Christmas party, BBQs and other great ways to have a good time. Also included are activities like karting, ski excursions and gliding in cooperation with Akaflieg.
Unfortunately, I am prevented from participating in the annual general meeting or general meeting. Can I cancel it?
Yes, a checkout is of course possible and even desirable explicitly when it is not be possible for you to participate in one of these meetings. For the quorum it is necessary that at least 30% of all regular members are present. You can be excluded in the calculation, whereas simply missing members (without prior notice) make reaching the Quorum more difficult. More information about the annual general meeting and also the general meeting can be found in § 8 and § 9 in our statutes.
My company would like to support the EUROAVIA.
How do I benefit them as a company? What opportunities are with me?
EUROAVIA is a rallying point for motivated and ambitious students who are fascinated by aerospace. Through your company's commitment you attract attention and also have the opportunity to win passionate engineers directly by offering internships and theses.
Our association has many years of experience in relation to cooperation with companies. These result in excursions, workshops, lectures and even popular events directly on the university campus.
Especially by the latter a wide range of students can be adressed, in addition to the members of the EUROAVIA. For further information about a possible cooperation, please send a short E-Mail to the Board.
We look forward to hearing from you!
