    60 years ago, the first jet aircraft JJ-1, designed and built in China, took off into the air. In commemoration of this event, Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics ( NUAA ) in close collaboration with the Chinese Society of Aeronautics   ( CSA ) is holding the third Asian Seminar and the first Student Design Competition on aircraft design. These two events will be held jointly within the framework of the Asian Workshop on Aircraft Design Education ( AWADE-2018 ) in Nanjing on 14-17 October 2018.



    The Seminar will discuss reports on top methodological and scientific issues related to the aircraft design and  organization of engineering education. Three sessions are proposed. 

  • The 1st session will be devoted to methodological issues aimed at improving the education process. This session will analyze teaching scheduling reflecting course curricula based on experience of different universities.

  • The 2d session will be connected with the general actual scientific problems in the aircraft design.

  • The 3d session will be devoted to special, narrowly-specialized topic that is to be selected during the AWADE 2018 preparation process.

    The Student Design Competition (SDC) will be held in order to assess students' knowledge and skills in the field of aircraft design, as well as to improve their skills as an outcome of their participation, performance, and analysis of reports presented at competition. The SDC will be held in two rounds.

  • The 1st  tour is the Team Championship; each student team will work on a conceptual aircraft design project.

  • The 2nd tour is the Individual Championship; each student-participant will work on questions related to the overall design, aerodynamics, aircraft strength, manufacturing and operation issues.

    Judging: the SDC Jury will be selected among the participants of the seminar, as well as among the supervisors of the student teams.


Addition activities

  • Opportunities for both students and professors to meet representatives of the aviation industry.

  • Tour around Nanjing.

  • Visits to laboratories and the Museum of Aviation Technology, meeting with the Chairs of NUAA.
