University of Minnesota Liquid Rocketry Team

Igniting the Future of Rocketry

At LPRD, we have a burning passion for anything and everything related to rockets. Since our creation in 2015, we have been designing, building, and testing high powered liquid rockets.

After wrapping up testing on our Mk. 1 engine in 2019 (and surviving a Covid hiatus), we are now testing our Mk. 2 engine, and finalizing the design for our first cryogenic engine. These two engines will be used in the Collegiate Propulsive Landing Challenge, which has various prizes for achieving thrust vectoring, engine throttling, and small hops.
