The Aerospace Team is an interdisciplinary group consisting of more than 50 students from different fields of study at Graz University of Technology. All members of the Rocket Team work together towards their ambitious goal.
Swagelok Austria is aware that today's young people are the leaders of tomorrow.
With our support we would like to contribute to making innovative projects such as that of the Aerospace Team Graz possible. It is important to us to stand up for Research and Development (R&D) and support with our know-how, our services and products.
In autumn 2020 we held a Swagelok Fitting Safety Seminar with the Aerospace Team. For maximum safety in the workplace, it is essential to acquire expertise and practice in the correct assembly of tubes and fittings.
