ARASoc (Aviation, Railway, and Automotive Society)

  • Groupsicon


ARASoc is a brand new and exciting society built on three major pillars of industry - aviation, railway and automotive.

As a society, we strive to provide individuals with opportunities to progress, socialise and learn new things about our three specialist areas.

Throughout the year, ARASoc senior leadership will be running several bespoke events to create a friendly and inviting atmosphere to all disciplines and years currently studying at the University of York.

Our team of dedicated committee members have first hand experience working in these sectors, and will be on hand throughout the year to provide bespoke workshops, presentation topic evenings, socials, as well trips out to hand selected locations. Our society is currently in the process of forming new corporate partnerships to provide individuals with tailored advice on entering industry - providing a clear line of career progression after leaving York.

Whether you have a genuine interest in any of these areas, either from a hobby or interest in pursuing a career, our society provides the perfect excuse to give something new a try.

Our society will begin term with an informal open presentation evening- with an opportunity to meet the team and our President. Our Vice President Alexander Smith will be there to give an insiders talk on Aston Martin Lagonda and the Aviation Trilogy Projects - an area he has personally project managed for the past seven months.
