Buckeye Vertical

Buckeye Vertical - Virtual Meeting

Buckeye Vertical (BV) is an interdisciplinary entity of driven and ambitious students who wish to explore Advanced Air Mobility (AAM), Urban Air Mobility (UAM), and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). Our objective is to give undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to explore and understand this area of study through professional development opportunities and project-based competitions that will support and create a platform of academic enrichment and excellence. Buckeye Vertical has created a UAM and UAS-focused lecture series, and is looking to establish industry partnerships, as well as get involved with local STEM outreach programs. Along with these goals, we look to foster an inclusive, safe, and diverse group of students that will strive to support and create a platform of learning for all members involved.  


A membership in Buckeye Vertical is open to all students interested in aviation and engineering. There are unlimited opportunities to explore within the realm of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM), and we are more than happy to support students throughout their journey to understanding this rapidly growing field. Contact our President for additional information on meeting times, upcoming projects, or ways to get involved!
