THE FIRST OF ITS KIND
The Australian Youth Aerospace Association (AYAA) is proud to support the inaugural Australian Universities Rocket Competition (AURC) at this year's major rocketry event Thunda Down Under 2019. Students are offered the unique challenge to design, build and launch a single-stage, high powered rocket using a commercial-off-the-shelf solid fuel propulsion motor. Teams are scored in their preliminary design, the quality & innovation of their manufactured rocket, the rocket launch trajectory and the safe & accurate recovery.
17-21 April 2019
Near Westmar, Queensland, Australia

If you are interested in taking on a practical challenge, the AURC offers an opportunity for you to showcase your skills to your peers and industry representatives.
Team registrations have closed, but there's still an opportunity to join a team already at your university for the 2018/19 competition!
As a sponsor
With your help, the AURC has the potential to become one of Australia’s best technology showcases. The competition provides an opportunity to meet Australia’s brightest young minds with a passion for Aerospace.
