BYU Rocketry provides students with hands-on experience that will enable them to become leaders and innovators in the space industry. Members take on complex engineering problems and face the challenges of collaborating with other students on an interdisciplinary project, as well as working to meet timeline goals and stay within a budget. These important skills, along with the ability to solve unique engineering problems, allow members of BYU Rocketry to stand out among the crowd of engineering students online, at job fairs, and in interviews.
In the short time since BYU Rocketry was founded in 2015, many students have gone on to work as interns and full-time employees at a number of companies in the aerospace, defense, and commercial space industries. This includes SpaceX, Orbital ATK, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, BAE Systems, Sandia National Laboratories, and more.
"Companies want to see more than just your GPA," says Ryan Garrison, founder of BYU Rocketry. "They are looking for students with the ability to solve probems that you don't encounter in a classroom."
