As the first university team of its kind in Queensland, UQ Space creates an opportunity for aspiring engineers and scientists to directly apply knowledge obtained during their studies and experience first-hand designing, building and launching rockets and associated technologies. By going beyond what is taught in a classroom setting, we bridge the gap between university and industry through outreach, research, practical experience and collaboration.
With over 70 ambitious students across all engineering disciplines (Mechanical, Aerospace, Electrical, Software, Computer, Mechatronics, Chemical and Metallurgical) and having backgrounds in multiple faculties (EAIT, Science, HASS and Business), we are a diverse team that strives for inclusivity, engagement and innovation.
UQ Space consists of five engineering subsections specialising in; avionics, payload, recovery, propulsion and structures, in addition to the board, administration team, marketing team and safety team. Each team is responsible for a fundamental component of our projects and successful operation.
