Bath University Rocket Team is a brand new competition team from the University of Bath, designing, testing, and building an experimental sounding rocket for the Spaceport America Cup in 2019.

About the Team

A group of twelve student engineers with an ambition for the stars!

Every year around June, universities gather in the New Mexico desert to launch experimental sounding rockets, vehicles of 2-6m tall with the aim of getting as close to 3000m as possible, known as the IREC Spaceport America Cup. Bath University Rocket Team (BRT), founded 2017, hopes to be one of the first UK universities to compete in this competition in 2019.

Join us as we design and produce a truly unique piece of engineering technology, and go where no other UK university competition team has yet gone!


BRT are looking for sponsors to help us reach our goal of building our rocket and reaching the Spaceport America Cup. In return we are able to offer exposure to students at one of the UK’s leading engineering universities through advertising on the rocket and around campus.
