Rocket Project at UCLA

Rocket Project at UCLA Logo

The Rocket Project at UCLA is an engineering organization in the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering, and is associated with the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) chapter here on campus. The group’s main goal is to cultivate the next generation of rocket engineers and industry leaders. All our members are undergraduate and graduate students ranging from the fields including but not limited to Aerospace, Mechanical, Material Science, Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. Our objective is to build rockets capable of reaching altitudes above 10,000 feet above ground level, while at the same time enabling our members to gain the hands-on experience necessary for future careers in engineering. Through this project, students are able to apply the skills they learn in the classroom towards a real project, forcing them to think like real engineers. Once built, these rockets will be entered in the Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competitions, which take place every June, and will compete against other rockets built by schools across the country. It's at this competition where our rocket science is put to the test! Additionally, we compete in advanced rocketry competitions for liquid propulsion based rockets such as the FAR-Mars Competition. If you'd like to join, please fill out this interest form: We can't wait to build some awesome rockets with you!
