The Fly a Rocket! programme is an intensive training course in rocket design and construction aimed at undergraduate students. The open-ended assignments, as well as the hands-on campaign, were the perfect lab-test for an engineering project. Activities like this prepare students for the problems faced in professional life, in commercial or research careers, and provide an active transfer between universities and institutions like ESA or sector companies.
