"Engaging students in space technology projects in collaboration with academia and industry partners"
ABOUT THE EPFL ROCKET TEAM
Our association, recognised by the EPFL, brings together about 200 students from EPFL but also from various Swiss schools and universities such as UNIL , HEIG-VD OR ZHAW. The ERT is currently overseeing four student projects. A competition project, whose goal is to design and launch a rocket in international competitions, a training project for bachelor students wishing to learn and train in rocket manufacturing and, finally, two research and development projects whose mission is to develop a system to re-land the competition rocket in the manner of SpaceX launchers and to design in-house bi-liquid propellant engines with the ultimate goal of reaching space.
