Getting Involved

UTIAS is a vibrant and highly collegial environment. On this page, you will find information about some of the ways to get involved with the UTIAS community.

Aerospace Students Association

The students at UTIAS are represented by the Aerospace Students Association (ASA). An executive consisting of a president, five councillors and two activities coordinators (social and athletic) is elected annually in September. The ASA organizes student activities including film nights, barbeques, and coffee and doughnut breaks. An active year-round sports program is also maintained by the students. Noon hour soccer, baseball, basketball and tennis are played on the sports field from spring until late fall. Weekly hockey games at a local rink and ski outings comprise the winter schedule. Bridge, chess, and billiards are played at the Institute throughout the year. Facilities for swimming and golf are available nearby.
