Our Mission.

RPL at UCSB aims to design, manufacture, and test quality rocketry projects developed for and by students. Our firm belief is that the rigorous design and safety challenges associated with building flying machines will give students the skills they need to thrive in any field of engineering they choose.


Our current primary goal is to compete in and WIN the $100,000 FAR Mars Rocket Competition Prize in 2020. We will design and produce a rocket to carry a 1kg payload to exactly 45,000ft no more... no less...
