Established in the summer of 2017, our team has tirelessly pursued High Powered rocketry. We will be attempting to launch our first rocket into space by summer 2018.  

Our Mission

Rutgers Rocket Propulsion Laboratory is committed to promoting and enhancing the astronautical engineering community at Rutgers University. Through our collaboration with Rutgers' AIAA chapter, Rutgers Makerspace and constant spirit for nationwide rocketry competitions, we hope to provide members with the necessary technical skills for outer space endeavors.
