Propulsion Laboratory


Housing a Spartan rocket, a rocket engine for general testing, and numerous afterburners, this lab is used mainly by aerospace and mechanical engineering students working on their senior capstone projects.

While aerospace engineers will design an aircraft based on a set of specs from their professors, the mechanical engineering majors will come to this lab and build the engine for those aircraft. These two majors work together as teams on their capstone projects, and after computer-aided design (CAD) and simulator testing of various pieces and ideas, these seniors will come here to build and test the final designs. This lab features access to both the Robotics Lab and the Wind Tunnel Lab.
