USC’s Student Rocketry Successs - Example of hands-on undergraduate training that provides students with experience-based engineering before graduation 22 August 2019 1100 - 1145
USC has three major efforts to provide students hands on training before graduation in the Department of Astronautical Engineering. The hands on activities to augment the academic curriculum specifically in space systems before graduation, while challenging from resources and laboratory facilities, provides benefits to students and industry upon transition. USC will present one successful group, the Rocket Propulsion Laboratory that has been in existence for 15 years.
