Aviation Week Offers Free Subscription to Your Campus Community

Good morning! A year ago Aviation Week made available to your faculty and students free digital subscriptions to our flagship publication, Aviation Week & Space Technology. We are able to make this offer again this fall. We hope you will share this information with your campus community. Our goal is to ensure that students -- in the full range of engineering disciplines, as well as in other professional degree programs -- are provided the best in technological and business intelligence about the aerospace and defense industry.

Aviation Week's 2014 Workforce Study found that industry plans to hire more than 30,000 individuals in the next 12 months, ranging from industrial and materials engineers to the more traditional aerospace and software engineers. It's an exciting time for the industry with record-breaking orders for commercial air transports and plans for new air, land and sea platforms. Between robotics, satellites and an all new space race, the industry faces an unprecedented era in all new innovation challenges.

We believe Aviation Week & Space Technology provides the very real demonstration of what is shared in your classrooms and labs. The free digital subscription can be accessed quite simply: go to
http://bit.ly/AWstudent to sign up, using an email address using .edu.

The attached graphic can be provided to students in print format, digitally or posted on your website. If there is anything additional we can do to assist you in providing this to your students and faculty, just let us know.

Have a great semester!
