We’re Warwick University’s student society for all things aerospace and spaceflight. Our goal is to one day launch a rocket into space. Along the way to achieving this, we give students of all disciplines the opportunity to get involved in exciting space-related projects, as well as going on trips and meeting like-minded people.
We meet weekly Mondays 6:00pm – 7:00 pm in OC0.01 (Oculus) where we discuss the latest spaceflight news and events, debate aerospace-themed topics and work on our projects such as model rocketry, high altitude ballooning and constructing a drone. If you’re interested in taking part in one of our projects, setting up your own project, hearing about the latest aerospace news, or just want to meet some like-minded people then we’d love to hear from you. Hope to see you soon!If you’re a Warwick student, you can join us and get involved in one of the projects we’re running—or get support to start your own!
Warwick Aerospace was founded under the name of ‘Warwick Rockets’ in 2014. The aim of the society was to connect students who wanted the opportunity to work on space-related extracurricular projects and meet other people interested in spaceflight. The society has since become ‘Warwick Aerospace’ to encompass other disiplines such as aircraft and drones.
We are the official Warwick University branch of UK Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (UKSEDS).
Members of our society are automatically members of UKSEDS, and can take part in projects, outreach events and attend conferences and workshops, including the Student Space Conference (check out some of the previous event presentations here), which is an awesome opportunity to go and see what’s going on in the world of space and socialise with other university societies.
This year we’re going to start more exciting and ambitious projects which will lay the foundations for future work towards being able to launch stuff into space! We’ll also run beginners’ workshops for budding rocketeers, go on trips to aerospace-related places (all on Earth, at least until the University’s minibuses are certified for human spaceflight), build connections with industry and hold regular events so you can meet your fellow space enthusiasts. Sound like something you’d be interested in?
