MANUFACTURING AND ENGINEERING PROCESSES (MEPS) HANDBOOK
This handbook is the go-to resource for learning how to build a rocket. It is an ongoing project to give the most detailed and comprehensive guide for both new and experienced members.
Our Rocket Design Guides describe the basics of high-power rocketry. They explain our design tools, build process, and how to obtain materials for your rocket.
If you are new to BYU Rocketry, click here for our basic design guide for Student Launch Competition and Level 1 Certification rockets.
VIDEO TUTORIALS AND LECTURES
Our YouTube tutorials can walk you step-by-step through our basic design and build process. These are a great resource for first-time rocket builders.

Rocket Building Supplies
Most sites sell motors in addition to hardware, but the following sites sell motors. If you are launching with BYU Rocketry, you may not need to buy your motor online. Please contact a member of student leadership before purchasing a motor from one of these websites.
Our next official launch is taking place next Fall. All of our launches are sponsored by the Utah Rocket Club; launch dates, weather updates, and other information can be found on their website.
Come to all launches prepared with tools, spare epoxy, and any other item you may need at the last minute. Bring sunscreen, water, a hat, and closed-toe shoes. Launches during the Fall Semester in October or November can be cold, so a jacket is recommended.
