Alexia Economou

President

Hey everyone! I’m Alexia (she/her) and the President of the Aerospace Course Union this year! In previous years, I’ve been a first year representative, a second year representative, and VP Education of ACU. At this point I’m just trying to collect as many positions as possible before graduating. I’m currently in my third year of aerospace and pursuing the aircraft stream. Some fun things about me are that I enjoy rewatching movies and tv shows an unhealthy amount of times, and I love anything to do with weather or natural disasters. Feel free to contact me on any of my socials below to ask questions or mention any concerns. I’m very excited to be a part of the  team again and can’t wait to see what this school year brings!

Hey there! I am Ahmad Ziad, your VP of education for this year. I am starting my 4th Aerospace year in the Spacecraft stream.

I will also be working on providing exam and midterm study sessions, as well as CATIA and MATLAB workshops to help you nurture your academic and engineering practical knowledge.
