Delft Aerospace Rocket Engineering

Based in Delft, The Netherlands, we are one of the most advanced student rocketry teams in the world. Since our founding at the Technological university of Delft in 2001, we have accumulated over 19 years of experience in high-powered rocketry. Our goals are to provide students with unique hands-on experiences and to reach space with a fully student-built rocket!

Alongside our Stratos and Aether flagship projects, we also conduct research in many multidisciplinary rocketry fields.
