Applications to Judge the 2024 Australian Universities Rocket Competition are now open. This is an exciting volunteer opportunity for experienced engineers to guide tertiary students through the engineering design cycle as they take on a multi-disciplinary project. 

As part of the competition teams of tertiary STEM students will design and build high power rockets to reach a target altitude. Teams are required to submit progress updates and technical reports which detail their rocket design, manufacturing process, risk assessment and other pertinent information. Reports will span the fields of Aerospace, Mechanical, Electrical and Software engineering.

As a judge for the AURC you will draw on your professional engineering expertise to mark and provide feedback on competitor submissions. There is also opportunity to attend the competition in-person in September 2024 for additional face-to-face judging of competitors.

Applications close January 1st 2024 at the commencement of the competition.
