OAC Student AeroPoster Session
March 7th, 2018
Toronto Airport Marriott Hotel

We are pleased to invite all Colleges and Universities in Ontario to participate in our second Student AeroPoster Session.

We are pleased to add that the first 24 students to submit their posters will be invited to attend the Aerospace Tier 1 Networking Dinner free of charge thanks to our event sponsor BDO. Please note that poster teams will be limited to having 2 students from their team attend the dinner. This invitation has been shared will all universities & colleges in Ontario, so they must act quick!

Following the huge success of our first student poster event last March, this is now a key feature of our Beyond The Barriers Research & Technology Week. In 2018, from March 7th to 8th, we will host our R&T Conference & Trade Show, our Aerospace Tier 1 Networking Dinner and varioius workshops.

The Student AeroPoster Session will be held just prior to the Networking Dinner and will see participants from Airbus, Bombardier, Cyclone Manufacturing, MDA, MHI Canada, Pratt & Whitney Canada, SPP, Safran and UTC Landing Systems in attendance.



2018 Student AeroPoster Session

We are looking to see innovative ideas from your students in:



The Vision:

  • The AeroPoster Session is to be an Exercise in Open Innovation: all new ideas or concepts, new systems or technologies, new materials and processes, or new designs for cargo, unmanned, commercial or business aircraft or spacecraft are welcome. As seen above, the only guideline is that it must be relevant to the aerospace sectors listed.
  • We are inviting your academic institution to submit up to three student posters to the OAC R&T Committee by no later than February 28th for review. All programs are eligible (undergraduate, graduate, etc.). *The OAC does reserve the right to refuse any poster deemed unsuitable or unsettling to the public.
  • On the afternoon of March 7th, students along with one representative from your academic institution , will be invited to present their posters to members of the Ontario Aerospace Community. This is a fantastic opportunity for students to engage with industry stakeholders and pitch their ideas and receive first-hand feedback from engineers, researchers and aerospace business executives. **Students must be present on March 7th to present their posters, if they are not on-site their poster will not be showcased.

Your Mission:

1. Promote the 2018 OAC AeroPoster Session to students in class and on social media using #AeroPoster

2. Share required poster dimensions: Tri-Fold Standing Poster Board of 36" x 48" (standard dimensions found at Staples). Tables will be provided at the event to place the posters. *Posters must be self-standing; no easels will be provided.

3. Complete your registration by providing a description and a PDF for each poster before February 28th using the REGISTRATION LINK.
