WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Students interested in a future in the aerospace industry are encouraged to attend a Purdue University event this week.

The Aerospace on Campus series, presented by the Wings Club, will run from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesday (Sept. 23) in Fowler Hall. The event is sponsored by the Department of Aviation Technology in the Polytechnic Institute and the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics in the College of Engineering.
