The University of Southern California’s Rocket Propulsion Laboratory is an undergraduate research laboratory that designs, builds and tests experimental rocketry and propulsion hardware.


The MISSION

RPL’s mission objective is to explore next-generation space exploration technologies in an amateur, student-driven context.

In addition, RPL aims to provide students the opportunity to apply knowledge taught in the classroom to a project with both tangible challenges and tangible results, as well as to provide an academically stimulating environment comprised of ideas from different disciplines and levels of experience.
