2019 Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition – Hosted by the Experimental Sounding Rocket Association (ESRA)

The Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering competition, is recognized as the largest University rocketry competition in the world. We have a team of students that will participate in the competition with the aim of launching a rocket to a target altitude of 30,000 ft above ground level. Typical competing rockets for this competition have a payload size of 8.8 pounds and the rockets themselves are typically 4 to 8 inches in diameter and 8 to 20 ft. long. Multistage rockets and all chemical propulsion types (solid, liquid, and hybrid) are also all permitted for this project.
