Aerospace Engineering, Astronautics & Space Technology MEng/BEng(Hons): Student projects

Projects our students have worked on

Unique rocket engine test system

Unique rocket engine test systemFor his final-year project, Jack James Marlow created a modular rocket test system. Not only has he left behind a legacy for future engineering undergraduates to test rocket designs on, but his bi-propellant system is the only one available for students in the UK.

Jack James, who has just graduated with a first, designed and manufactured the system himself, with input from Newton Launch Systems Ltd.

He has already attracted plenty of interest for his system from industry leaders Moog-ISP and the European Space Agency – plus he has showcased his work at the UK Space Conference in Glasgow. Jack James explains more about his project.

Rocket project launch success

Rocket project launch successWhilst other students were enjoy their summer soaking up the sun, travelling and visiting back home, Ben Edgley and Chris Walker spent theirs designing, building and launching water rockets for their second-year group project.

The group were tasked to design and construct a water rocket that could reach a height of at least 50 metres and had to use their knowledge of rocket engines to design various concepts, predict performance, construct prototypes and finally launch. Read more about the launch and theory behind the project.
