Society for Advanced Rocket Propulsion



Current Status:

Check again soon! Applications are typically open during early fall quarter.

SARP's main role on campus is as an Aeronautics and Astronautics capstone in the College of Engineering; however, about 55% of students in SARP are not in Aerospace Engineering. Majors of students on SARP range from almost every type of engineering to Physics, Business, and even Biology. Due to the complexity of our project, there will be expectations of members at all levels. General members are expected to put in an average of 5-10 hours a week.

While technical knowledge and experience will certainly help your application, our primary goal is to facilitate learning and bring on interested and committed members so please do not worry if you have little to no experience, we are here to change that! If you are passionate, own your work, and are ready to learn, please apply.

After you have submitted your application, we will contact you to schedule an interview or decline your application within two weeks. After you have completed your interview, we will notify you within two weeks of your application decision. This application will close on October 8, 2023, at 11:59 PM and final decisions will be sent out by October 27, 2023. Applications may be considered past this date given heavily desired skills or SARP member referral!

Our Mission

SARP is an entirely student-run club at the University of Washington developing the technology to send a high-powered liquid bipropellant rocket to space.

SARP presents a hands-on, fast-paced, and endearingly scrappy opportunity for members to develop technical and professional skills outside of the classroom. We will begin the year with an engine-test program, then launch our Pacific Impulse rocket at the Dollar Per Foot competition, and then continue work towards Space 2025. Concurrently, SARP is continuing its solid rocketry program with the goal of entering a rocket into the 2024 Intercollegiate Rocketry Engineering Competition (IREC).
