QLD Representative - Nick Phillips

Nick Phillips is in the third year of a Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical and Aerospace) degree from the University of Queensland.

Nick was first involved with the AYAA in the role of Student Liaison for the 2018 Queensland Committee, with the aim of providing students with the support and information they needed to join AYAA and become involved with AYAA events. To build upon this in 2019, Nick has taken the roles of Queensland Representative and AYAF Sponsorships Coordinator, aiming to further support students with a passion for Aerospace and Aviation, regardless of their location or study pathway. Nick's investment in the aerospace industry is clear through his experience in the AYAA Rocket Project, working with schools, and his time spent with UQ Space, where he has further developed his connections with students and industry.

In the future, Nick aspires to work in Australia's growing aerospace sector and explore applications in defence and space launch platforms.
