UC Aerospace is a fully student-led aerospace club at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. Our goal is to promote aerospace engagement among students, and since our foundation, we have led student-based rocketry programs in the southern hemisphere. We give our members the opportunity to participate in a variety of projects that expose them to the design, manufacture, and safe operation of aerospace vehicles.
Over our short time being active, we've participated in several international rocketry competitions, including the Spaceport America Cup. Besides our competition programmes, we also run programmes that use advanced manufacturing techniques to create composite airframes and solid-rocket fuel motors. In 2023, we aim to continue our mission and use the momentum gained over the past five years to push us to new heights.
