Student rockets propel Norwegian space exploration forward
Propulse NTNU is a student organization that designs, builds, and launches rockets. The project aims to provide students with a unique opportunity to gain practical experience through realistic engineering projects that can help strengthen their skills as engineers in future projects and careers.
The biggest rocket project so far
This year’s project, Bifrost, is the largest and most ambitious so far. The goal of the project is to design a brand-new student-developed bi-propellant liquid engine that will be used in the rocket. By developing this engine, Propulse aims to contribute to driving Norwegian space exploration forward. This is something that helps provide students with an opportunity to work with technology that will be important for the future of space exploration, while also gaining valuable experience and knowledge.
– GKN is a key contributor to Bifrost’s ability to reach its goal through training, technical guidance, and financial support. The collaboration represents GKN Aerospace Norway’s recognition of our organization, which helps strengthen our position in the face of the Norwegian and international space industry. Furthermore, the project is dependent on the direct support that GKN provides, says William Dugan, Chief Propulsion Engineer at Propulse.
