GPPS Partnerships

Global Power & Propulsion Society (GPPS) provides an environment for professionals to meet and exchange results and ideas. GPPS was founded in order to fill the need for an organisation that could bring together experts from different fields within the power and propulsion industry.

Through collaboration and networking, GPPS increases its members’ effective network, improving their visibility and helping drive the industry forward. We host regular Technical Conferences, Workshops and Forums, also providing members with access to a variety of online resources, including a movies, past papers, datasets and our Turbomachinery Journal. By bringing together professionals from all over the world, GPPS promotes advancements in the power and propulsion industry and help its members stay ahead of the curve.

We are pleased to announce that GPPS is an official partner of the Turbomachinery Lab. With many cross-over interests and events we feel our members would greatly benefit from the collaboration.

Texas A&M Turbomachinery Laboratory

The Turbomachinery Laboratory, a member of the Texas A&M University System, proudly continues Texas A&M’s land-grant charter and tradition in Basic and Applied Research, Undergraduate and Graduate Education, and Continuing Education and Professional Workforce Development.


A variety of fundamental and applied research is performed by Turbo Lab faculty, post docs, and students. This research is sponsored by a combination of government and industry sources through traditional grants and contracts. Unique test rigs and extreme environments are among the many reasons why the Turbo Lab continues to be a leader in turbomachinery and energy-related research. Full capabilities can be seen here.

Another way Turbo Lab faculty and students team up with industry partners is through the Turbomachinery Research Consortium. The TRC is a unique organization of major turbomachinery developers and users who have joined with the Turbo Lab to find answers to important questions through research.


The Turbo Lab impacts the turbomachinery industry by providing a platform for the continuous exchange of ideas among working professionals. These platforms include the Turbomachinery and Pump Symposia (Houston, Texas August 19 – 22, 2024) and the Asia Turbomachinery and Pump Symposium (ongoing symposia in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia May 13-16, 2024).

Additionally, as part of its workforce development arm, the Turbo Lab offers extended short courses throughout the year led by industry experts and academics. Courses range from three-to-five days and offer working professionals valuable education opportunities in an interactive environment.
