For over 10 years, Purdue SEDS has pushed the limits of student-led rocketry projects.
Purdue Space Program
The up-and-coming premier collegiate rocket project. Purdue Space Program is working on the FAR-MARS competition to design, build, and fly a LOX/LCH4 rocket. We have designed a full-launch platform and vehicle. From the mobile methane condenser to cutting edge tank design, we have poured lots of love, coffee, and Matlab code into this fun and exciting project. This year's goal is 45,000 feet.
NASA Student Launch
NASA Student Launch is an annual competition that challenges students to design, build, and fly a rocket with a scientific payload to 5,280 feet. This year the team has developed a system to track targets on the ground in real time.
SpacePort Cup America
The newest team in the Purdue SEDS roster. This group of freshman and sophomores are designing and building a 20,000Ns solid rocket motor to take a 9 pound payload to 30,000 feet. This year's goal is to fly a commercial solid rocket to 30,ooo feet that carries the payload in June at Spaceport Cup America.

Legacy: Purdue Hybrid
From 2004- 2011 SEDS members designed a flew multiple hydrogen peroxide LDPE hybrid rockets reaching over 30,000 feet. The project has ended, but we have kept records for future generations.
