UC Aerospace is a fully student led aerospace club located at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch New Zealand. The goal of the club is to promote aerospace to the wider community through outreach programs and regular launches. Our members are exposed to hands-on engineering problems through a variety of club projects, including design, manufacture, and safe operation of aerospace vehicles.
Our projects include building flight-worthy vehicles from the ground up with cutting-edge materials and manufacturing techniques. Control mechanisms, composite air frame manufacture and solid-fuel motor production are a sample of specialisations that contribute towards our projects. In 2021, we are starting a new satellite project that will focus on creating a scientific laboratory inside a CubeSat to a space-ready standard. We are also developing a space law division and opening up to arts and commerce projects.
